  • Body / Glass: Another engine paint question

    What color should a 63 and a 62 289 engine be? It looks like the 62 was red originally with red valve colors. And I am guessing the 63 was black? with yellow valve covers and red caps..

    62 was also black with yellow valve covers,(no breather caps) reddish orange filler cap, no STP sticker. 63 had the breather caps on the rocker covers, with the STP stickers.
    The inside of the blocks were coated with a sealant (red Glyptol) and when the black wears off people often mistake it for the original engine color.
