A friend (non-forum user) is rebuilding a '39 Champion Six. He has asked me about engine color, and I think green, but I don't know for sure, or what shade. Can anyone give me some guidance so I can help him determine what shade, or name of green (if that is indeed the color)?

Thanks,
Larry

Engine paint for 1954 and earlier is green. I don't know the name of the color but the paint is available from Studebaker International.

I have often seen it referred to as Bell Telephone truck green.

Olive Green, a muddy Dark Green. Same as Packard Green and Military Olive Drab but with Gloss.
