Looks dusk blue to me, but you might want to try These Guys.
They should know all about the First Gen Caprice.

I'm leaning towards Dusk Blue. Aure Turquoise is a lighter and different shade of blue altogether.

Brings back memories - I had a '69 Caprice coupe just like that except it was Fathom Green with a black vinyl top, 427, loaded to the gills, Comfortron A/C, etc; it was like a Cadillac with Chevy emblems on it.   Grin

Another possibility that appears closer to that Caprice shade to me is Lemans Blue Poly.   a bit lighter than the very dark Dusk Blue.   
here is a link that has color charts and codes...

Yeah, me too. My dad bought a 2 door Fathom Green Impala with the 350 in 69. Loved it so much I have since had a 4 door Gold/Gold/Gold Caprice with a 350/300 engine in 82 and when my wifes pop-pop died I acquired his 4 door Glacier Blue/White 'PAINTED" top/ medium blue with 327 Belair. For a family car you really can't beat them. I really would like to find another decent driver 2 door Impala but I never see them around here.

I was looking at that same chart the other day. It is really hard to tell between the darker colors. Glacier Blue is out I had one that color before. I looked at the charts in that Impala website 'lakeholme' posted but it's hard to tell by that as well. That is a nice color. Easy on the eyes.

Yep, the first gen Caprice rode like a true land yacht, but handled better than most of the other big cars of that day, IMO.   Grin

That's the problem with charts, hard to tell.  I was going more by other pictures of dusk blue on the web.  It's looks lighter on a car than a chart.
But when you consider how Gary's pic has the car in the shade, it makes it even harder to tell.   Undecided

I'm glad to see the darker blues and greens trying to make a comeback in the new car world!  Grin

  I think it's Dusk Blue.  Notice how well the paint and the Blue Vinyl roof match.  The Blue Vinyl roof and Dusk Blue paint matched very closely I've seen quite a few.  Neither LeMans Blue or Azure Turq. was anywhere near that close of a match.
