WL--I've restored a 29 K Model and 2 30 CK Desotos. In all 3 cases the engine block was black and the head is metallic silver. This color scheme was also used in all the 29-30 models at numerous National Desoto club shows I've attended.

According to the Plymouth Owners Club, there was a "high compression head which which were red" for 1928Q, 1929 U and apparently the the 1930 U. I've never seen one. Note these are all 4 cylinder engines. I wonder if Chrysler and or Desoto, Dodge had anything similar?
