1965 - 289, I know the block and intake are black , Mine has the chrome dress up kit , so no gold paint needed , but , A bit confused about other parts colors. Power steering bracket and canister? Altenator bracket? water pump? Tranny dip stick and dip stick housing? exhaust manifolds , do I paint them or leave them to rust? all the other brackets and so on? If you can help me out, I would really appreciate it . Would also be great if you could tell me if the paint colors are gloss, semi gloss, satin, flat and so on. I really want to do the colors correct for this car. Thanks in advance for all of your help.

JOHN

Wow! That's a stumper if I ever heard one. All of my brackets and hardware are original, but weathered. They were black at one time, chipped and faded now. Not for long

If I had to guess, FoMoCo probably used the same paint to shoot the block, heads, engine compartment, brackets, etc., but don't quote me on that

You were lucky Charlie, I once tried mailing several MCA judges located on their site on the same issue when I was trying to keep my car original....only one emailed me back and that was to tell me he couldn't help !!!

I don't know if you have Ford or Eaton Ps pump. The ford pump is black or a medium shade of blue that is available. I think the Eaton was silver or natural. Alternator bracket and arm is black.The Ford PS bracket, actually a saddle mount, is black.The dipstick tube and handle for oil would be black. I believe that the handle on the trans dipstick is silver or cad. The water pump would be black. The exhaust manifolds: I cleanied them of all rust and painted them with a hi temp cast finish gray that looks natural and baked those suckers in the oven! Yes, there are varying shades of black. Pulleys are shinier than satin but a little less than full gloss,same with ps saddle, shock tower brackets. I saw some of that Eastwood radiator paint and it loked good. For the aprons, you can use Krylon semi flat. #1613. Yeah, I know, some guys have spray equip, so do I. but the Krylon is cheap, durable and correct, even getting the nod from Perkins. I got the info from the MCA judging manual with the exception of the Krylon. Hope this helps.
