Hi all. Would like to know the engine color for 1961 Willys Truck L226 engine. Were the transmission/transfer case painted. Starting to restore this which was my Dad's. It has a dump body.

Thanks Harold.:)

Thanks Jim. This truck is a 1961 and has a rebuilt eng. There is a tag that on it says remanufactured for Kaiser Jeep Copr. The eng. looks like it is painted a dark red or moroon.

For the silver engine, I used Duplicolor's aluminum high heat engine paint. For the maroon engine (my 54K), I used Duplicolor's Dark Canyon Red truck paint. It's held up to the heat without blistering or fading.
