    Sounds as if your engine is the original color if it is not very dark

    Glad you posted this. It is going to be a spring project of mine. Can you get this paint at Autozone type places? I looked at my local NAPA and they only had Ford blue. Needless to say, she isn't going Ford.
    Also, for the air cleaner, is it a high temp paint or will a regular paint work?

    An auto body supply place has the Ditzler/DuPont/PPG charts. From the factory it was Ditzler Blue #14946.
    The aircleaner was a gold metallic, I'll research the color code - I believe this is hi temp paint, regular would not last long at all.

    OK, thanks.
    My 70 has a black air cleaner so if you happen to see info on that please let me know.
    Thanks
