I saw a few colors in that chart that didn't seem correct to me.

However, Todd is correct. The 1964 289 engine did indeed have a black painted block with Red / Orange valve covers and air cleaner. As did the 170 -6 cylinder of that year. I'm not sure about the other 6 cylinders of 1964 without looking them up. And the 1964 Fairlane with the 260 V-8 and other mid-size models with that engine, did have a black block with Ford Light Blue covers and air cleaner. In 1966 they went to using the darker blue.

And to throw another towel in this, the V-8 Falcons had gold air cleaners and valve covers in 63 1/2 and 64 and possibly 65 and one of my friends 64 Fairlane did too!! I also seem to remember some of the big-block cars from the early sixties having gold. All these also had black blocks and heads. There were actually advertisements in 1966 telling about Ford was going blue as their corporate color. John
