    Here's a page with a bunch of blue Mondial photos: http://www.okietalk.com/mondialqv/Default.aspx Click Fotos->Mondials->Blue Mondials Lots of other good images there as well. I think this is cockrill's page.

    Mine is a coupe, so I'm ineligible to comment on top color :)

    I love the Mondial in blue, and would not hesitate to put a blue top on one.

    If any one out there knows of any blue Mondials for sale, I could be in the market for one. Preferably a 3.2 or QV.

    I've always had a very soft spot in my heart for blue Mondials. I was blessed to be inducted to the model personally by the late Dr. Ben Brown. He was an accomplished man that owned many cars throughout his life. Among his eclectic fleet, he owned a beautiful blue Mondial. He had the wealth and ability to buy many other cars, in fact he had several other cars in his fleet. He told me his one love has and always will be his Mondial, and it was his perennial favorite to drive. Ben eased my concerns during early ownership.

    I miss him to this day. Whenever I see a blue Mondial, I think of him and his friendship. RIP Ben!

    The first picture and the last could be different colors...there is a different shade. Can be a picture thing...
    Here you find the Blue colors and respect. years of use by Ferrari. You find after each color the possible manufacture and paint codes.

    You are correct. I assume you are in Europe.
    Blue Mondials are hard to find in the US for sale.

    Yes Europe. But the original color whas Azzurro, much clearer. Changed to this color before my ownership. You can buy a red or other color and change it to the color you like Will be faster then waiting to appear a blue one in the states. That yellow one is a nice car and whas prugna before....

    A complete color change in the US, is $30,000 (good quality). You might be right, this is the way, I will have to get it done, since a blue one is hard to find. Thank you for your valuable input
