I think a nice pink block with purple heads and dark yellow water pumps would be just right!!! LOL

I also like the Ford green, even though my flatty is an 8BA in a 1934 PU. (Made in Canada, by the way in 1954). I don't think the gold colour on the caps is quite Early Ford correct, but it does look nice. Some people don't like the look of the hardened washers under the head bolts, but it makes for smoother tightening to torque specs. Referring to another post, you cannot see the full flow oil filter that is mounted under the floorboards. I've got to paint those manifolds, maybe to-day!
