Proper engine color

Over the years there has always been a debate on the proper engine color for our cars. I was checking EBAY today and there is a 27 Star coupe on there that appears to have the correct gray/green color. Not on the water pump, that appears to be a mismatch, but the actual motor appears to be correct as far as I can see.If not it's a very close match. In the next couple of months I hope to find my chips that I put away somewhere and will have a batch of the paint mixed. Once I do, I'll have the mix codes for anyone.

Mike,
Are you sure all models of Durant and Stars used the same color for the engines?
