Default Engine color

I am restoring a 55 F 100 with a 239 ohv. What color should the engine be? It looks like it was yellow, but I have never seen any Ford engine in yellow. Are the valve covers black?

Try here, and I've seen some other sites which similar, just don't have them on hand.

Yellow should be right
