  • 64 cruiser engine color

    Recently purchased a 64 cruiser in very fine condition and want to restore to orginal condition. Does anyone know the color scheme of the engine?

    The engine block, heads intake manifold, oil pan, all semi-gloss black engine enamel. Valve covers and auto. trans. dipstick handle, yellow (with an very slight orange tint). Air cleaner, satin black. Engine fan, Oil filler caps and oil dip stick handle, red, (again more like chevy orange)
    Alternator, natural alum. Starter black. Exhaust manifolds, natural cast iron but a lot of folks use the Eastwood stainless exhaust manifold paint. Hope most of this helps
