  • Engine color for a '53 - 6 cyl.

    I could probably find the data somewhere, but it is quicker to ask you guys who regularly respond to questions here. My '53 6 cyl engine is being rebuilt by a shop that doesn't do a lot of Studebakers. What was the correct engine color for that year, and was the fan blade a different color, as was true in later years?

    Thanks in advance,

      And that Studebaker Green is a dark olive green. I'd call it "semi-gloss". All postwar Stude engines were this color up thru the '54 year models.

      Some vendors carry spray cans of the stuff.

      Miscreant at large.

      No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.
