  • Correct '55 Engine Pullies and Brackets Color?

    General engine color "Alberta Blue", check.
    Valve covers "Gold", check..."Bearcat" Decals.

    Crank, WP, Generator pullies--? Black, blue?
    Miscellaneous engine brackets, dipstick tube and handle--Same question.

    Thanks,

    Eddie

    Mid-gloss black for those items.

    Technically, though, you can't see the water pump itself when the engine is assembled...just the water pump manifold. The manifold should be painted the engine's primary color (same as heads and block). [8D]BP

      Thanks, Bob.

      I don't know how absolutely Concours-correct this is, but I am planning to match up samples of "Alberta Blue" from this aerosol can I bought off Fairborn with a local powder-coater's palette--this thing is going to be driven when done!

        I certainly wouldn't worry about an engine color match as you contemplate, Eddie. Engine color will change due to engine heat and time anyway, so it's hard to imagine any color selected as you described will be that far off. BP
