While I have the engine out of my 50 and the doghouse off I want to paint the engine and other parts. My question is, where is the least expensive place to get the green paint for the engine. Or, is there an engine green that will match the engine color that can be bought someplace like Autozone etc.

Yes you could buy it locally, if you can get a NAPA store that does Automotive Body Paint mixing to do it, and try for Military Green or 1940's and 1950's Bell Telephone Co. Truck Green, but the cost would be over double or triple the $12.50 a 12 OZ spray can that I get, and you need a professional spray gun and compressor to spray it! [:0]

I just buy mine from Myers Studebaker or Studebaker International. They sell good quality product and it is always good when you can support a Studebaker vendor so they will be there in the future when you need them :)

The stuff from Stude Inter. is very good paint, it adheres well to engine castings. I really stinks, tho, I use a resppirator when spraying it.[xx(]
