Take it to a body supply/ paint jobber and get one of the exsisting panels digitally scanned for a match.

Take your car to any full-line paint jobber, they can throw the analyzer on it and come up with a good formula.

You don't want the color it once was you want the color it is now. Have it scanned and analyzed at a reputable body shop. Wayne

Needed to repaint my trunk lid on my coupe so I took my sun visor from my coupe to a paint store and had it scanned like Mitch says. Perfect match! Worked out great and I also used the paint to touch up spots elsewhere.

Why not just drive your car there? Wayne

I am sure this blue may not work for you but I just went to my Ford tractor store and bought some Ford Blue tractor paint to paint my huckster. Also knew this paint was not a "true blue" model A color but I liked it and for a huckster who would care. Must have worked because over the last few years I have received around 10 of 15 awards with this rig at various car shows.
