  • Engine Paint Colors

    Does anyone know the correct engine paint colors for a 58 Packard sedan? I know valve covers are black but the intake manifold and block I'm not sure. Does anyone know of any resources on the web?

    The block, heads, intake and bellhousing would've been silver. Not a real bright silver, but a sort of grayish silver. Most everything else was black.

    Miscreant at large.
