    The engine block on my 1929 133 looks greenish-gray. I want to buy paint from Bill Hirsch but they do not know about PA engine colors.
    Does anyone know what color gray I should ask for? I think one needs to specify make and year.


    The sales handout for early 1930 shows:
    * Head – Black
    * Block – Medium Blue-Gray
    * Pan – Terne Coat (lead coated, which is a medium gray)
    * Transmission – Light Yellow
    * Carb – Brass plated, or anodised.

    Although Black was most common, I believe dark red, dark blue, and dark green were sometimes seen, but I suppose these were custom orders. In any case the Head was almost always Black.
