What color is the engine block on 1923 Dodge

Recommended Posts

I was degreasing my engine this week end and the block appears to be an off white. What is the true colr and is the head the same color? What about the accessories.

Thanks

Jan,

The 'official' nomenclature for the engine paint is 'Ditzler Motor Grey'.It is rather a combination of light grey and green. I understand this was a 'Non Color-fast' coloring and varied from time to time, sometimes a little more grey and other times a little more green. I understand ROMAR has a spray can of color enamel available. As to the 'accessories', I presume you are referring to those parts which would have been bolted on to the block after the paint was applied. Most of these were black. The oil pan was not painted rather was galvanized. I hope this helps some. R.A.H.

ROMAR also have a color schedule for sale--reasonably priced--that identyfies what engine parts are off-green and which other parts are black.
