Hi Guys,

Can anyone tell me what the correct colors should be for Wilber's (my '57 transtar) engine? I believe that car engines were turquoise with black valve covers and accessories. But I've seen a couple illustrations that show stude truck engines being sort of an oragngeish red. HELP!!!
Thanks,
GLenn

The red may have been in the factory brochures, often not even close to what was used.
