    The engine colors should be the same as my '52; so here goes nuttin' if so The block, heads, water manafold, intake, ect; is all a dark green. That color is available from most Studebaker parts vendors, OR; I have planned on cheating and using a dark forest green from Rustoleum. The Air cleaner, valve covers, ect; is all black. I want to say semi gloss black; but I paint all that stuff myself gloss black.
