The only Valvoline oil that I ever saw that was blue, was the full synthetic racing oil. Post a pic of it and that will tell the story.

Given the API service spec, it's likely about 40 years old. I personally would not run "new" oil from a 40-year old opened container in anything I cared about just for the sake of using it.

It would be on its way to my local waste oil recycler if it were me...

Kendall GT-1 Green tint. Brad Penn “Green oil” Brad Penn bought the plant years ago. Loaded with zinc. Probably Best oil ever refined. It’s all i use in my cast iron “Big Block” Buick 455. If you Google Machine shops in Pa. “ Engine builders. They ALL sell Brad Penn oil
