Just curious if anybody knew the correct engine color for a ‘62 Meteor with the 221 V8?
Engine was rebuilt around 1980 so I assume it was repainted then,but after pressure washing 40 years of gunk off it looks like the block is black and heads were close to Ford blue. I don’t think either one of those is correct. No biggie but figured if I have to paint it after I rebuild it I might as well use the right color if it’s available.
Thanks!

I'd guess black might be the likely colour. I'm sure the corporate blue didn't come along until a few years after 62. Mercury may have had different colours than Ford cars. Hang on, I'm sure someone here knows the answer.

Not sure about 62 Merc colors but my 65 Mustang “A” code 289 block and heads were black with gold valve covers and air cleaner.
