  • Engine: Correct engine block color for a '64 289

    I just bought a rebuilt '64 289 to install in my '53 Commander Starliner. Before I install it, I'd like to paint it the correct '64 color, but I don't know what that color is. Can someone point me to the information or tell me what color it should be? Thanks Howard

    The 1964 289 engine block is black with yellow valve covers, orange fan, orange dip stick handle and orange breather caps. Bud

        Since you are putting in into a 53, why not paint it the 53 green, so it looks right under the hood?

          Roy, it's a personal thing with me, but I just don't like the '53 engine green. Besides, the car is not original; presently a '56 289, converted from automatic trans. to 3 speed w/overdrive, converted to 12 volts, etc..
