1963 1/2 Galaxie 500 289 c.i. engine colors
No offesnse, but why does it matter? If you are going to paint the engine, why not paint it whatever color you want. You said yourself, "Ford picked some ugly colors". If it needs to be painted, isn't this your chance to paint it anyway you want?
I can understand why some people like "all original", but color is the one choice that everyone should make for themselves. Color is the biggest form of self expression when building a cool car. Do something different, make it your own.
If a car is already mint, i wouldn't F with it, but if it needs paint anyway....
Again, no offense. To each his own. I'm just curious.
