Hi Tony,

The 1935-6 Ford book says GLOSS BLACK on page 92, if I remember correctly.

Hi Everyone, Without looking it up, I agree, gloss black.

Guys,
For the record... I really didn't look it up. I just did a Paint Color List on WORD for the parts on my car yesterday. I actually did remember that info for 24 hours. Now honestly some days I think that I can't remember my own name. It's an age thing!
