    Thought I would post this question on site so others may also be able to find it here if needed.
    What is the engine block color on 63 V8 ?
    Does anyone have a paint code for the yellow paint on valve covers?
    Are all the brackets for Alt, air and ps painted or left natural?
    Intake manifold, same as block ?
    Automatic Transmission paint color?
    Rear end paint color?
    Chassis and all related parts -- semi gloss black?
    thanks guys----

    Does anyone have a paint code for the yellow paint on valve covers? I don't but I think you can buy John Deere yellow that's a fair match.

      Here's a couple of pics of my (sold) '62. A '63 is similar. SI and other vendors have the yellow for the valve covers and trans dip stick, and the red for the oil filler, fan, and oil dipstick in spray cans.

        Thanks, Jim. This was a 14,000 mile 4 door Regal. 259 auto. Super nice driving car. I detailed it beyond new (it was pretty easy ).

        I have owned a lot of Studebakers, and wish I had them all still, but I miss two of them the most. This Lark and the '58 Wagon I sold to Mr. Biggs. The Lark went to a lady in LA who is using it as her daily driver. The wagon is in very good hands (of course) and I even get to visit it every now and then [^]
