Show me your engine colour


There seems to be a lot of different blues out there. I was just wondering what shade others on the forum have gone for.
I'm replicating loosely a 68/69 car and so a blue block rather than a black one is probably what I'll choose.
Please post photos of your engine block..Even the black ones, as I'm not totally sold yet.


Martin, as far as I know there are 2 shades of the Ford blue. Ford Corporate Blue, which is a dark blue and is the one I believe that is period correct (besides black). The other is the lighter blue. Someone else may have exact info.
Great photos, thanks,
What is the consensus on cyclinder heads ? Painted the same colour as the block, black, bare aluminium (if ali heads) ?
