  • 1959 truck small six engine color

    I belive the correct color is silver. If so was the head the same color or different?
    Who is a good supplier of this paint

    Thanks again.

    Yeah, the head, block, pan - all silver. Fan, pulleys, oil filter, generator, starter, distributor - black. Air cleaner too. They really were sorta sloppy in applying the paint. Lotsa overspray here and there. They weren't looking at it from a show judging standpoint.

    You can get engine paint from a Stude vendor but frankly, you could do just as well with engine enamel from a local auto parts store. Especially with silver - I doubt anyone's gonna critique the shade you use.

    Miscreant at large.

      Thanks for this advice to. I won't be too careful with the paint.
