Hello Anne.
Late at 1957 Studebaker did replace the turquise engine color with a silvergray color.
(From TW 1995 Dec)
I will use the silvergrey at my Transtar.

Keep in mind Lennart that few if ANY have ever been found of the few last '57's that they ran out of Turquoise engines on, and "borrowed" a few of the new engines scheduled for the '58 model run for.

Also, Fred Fox did not base his color info on an actual "from the factory" engine, but faded 20 + year old ones. Because I and others have SEEN them, and they never had ANY gray in them, all were Aluminum Silver, as new engine parts found at SASCO will and have proven!

So now I know why the change color.
I learn all the time.
The only silver colored engine I have seen, is the engine I painted 15 years ago for the Silver Hawk -58 I had then.
All those engines seems to be repainted red or blue
