What color was the engine block & heads originally? 1967 Mercury Cougar 289

I can find Ford Blue, Ford-Mercury Blue, Ford Red, & Ford Grey.

Thanks!

Ford Dark Blue. Krylon #1923 is one option that can usually be found at auto parts stores or variety stores.

Great, that's what I was thinking but wasn't sure if Mercury followed suit.
Great looking car BTW

I think I might try the Eastwood ceramic paint.

Thanks

Thanks.
I used the Eastwood ceramic paint on my current engine and it is a good match for the correct blue. What I didn't like is that it doesn't lay down real well and left quite a bit more orange peel than I was comfortable with. I also ended up clearcoating it to get the look I was going for.
