A friend is restoring a 1947 GMC 236 truck engine and having difficulty to determine the original 236 engine color for paint.
The original color appears to be army truck green in some areas.
Would anyone know the correct color or a good source for that paint?
Go to classicparts.com
then GMC-classicChevy truck parts.
It shows the engine paint to be 'olive'.
They have all kind of old chevy truck parts and paint.
Hope this helps. It does show a can of the engine paint for 49.95.
John, thanks for the lead.
Now, I'm wondering if the engines were left over from an army contract or painted green with left over army paint.
There is a 4210 number cast in the block, which suggests either the 10th week or month of 1942.
Is that 236 a flathead? I didn't know they still were available then. Thanks, Dave in Bellingham, wa
