Colr code

trying to purchase touch up paint for my 66 impala ss--paint code on trim tag is F-1, but the website has 2 light blue colors and no F-1 code. Trying to hold pics of car up to computer screen from touch up company to get a match! Yea, that will work!!! I heard that the color is Bright Blue, then I heard Marina Blue(which I thought was a 67 chevelle color). Any help would be appreciated.

F-1

The Trim tag represents upper and lower body code colors, when you have a vinyl top or in your case a convertible top the code after the letter is for that color top. F-1 translates to Marina Blue with a white convertible top. You should find the color match for Marina Blue.

You can find the original paint mixed up for you or in touch up bottles at most professional paint stores.

Just bear in mind that is the original color not the faded and oxidized paint you have now. If you drive your car to the store they can pull off a closer match with an optical scanner they place against the car to read what you have now. But even then the top of the car will be lighter than the sides from years of UV exposure.
