A color ad of 1929/30 from the factory shows the engine as follows: Head – black, pan – gray lead coated,Block- medium blue, transmission – cream yellow. Valve covers – chrome, water defuser – chrome, intake and exhuast manifolds – black. Horn – black, fan – natural aluminum, ignition tube and ‘fan’ – chrome. Most people think that this was only for ad purposes, but I’ve painted mine this way. I’ve yet to be judged by a PA.
