Danny, I'm glad you posted those pictures of the engines. I was originally thinking the oil pan was the same color as the valve cover and air cleaner.

I've been procrastinating on engine paint and now it has bit me. No rattle cans of the Packard Ivory and no mention of Chrysler industrial red. Any chance of someone who has painted their engine lately that can update this thread?

Great minds think alike. I decided to paint the block, valve covers and air cleaner on my 54 Crestline. Looks like orange and yellow to me but. . . . . but all that I am reading says Ivory and Red. Have not been able to determine what color Ivory and Red is involved. I saw the reference to Packard and Chrysler but that meant nothing to me either.
Have you had any responses yet? C&G, Macs and Dennis Carpenter didn't help either.
I would like to get some to brush on and some aerosol - so if you get any brands, numbers colors etc, please let me know. See you in Memphis

As far as the ivory goes, the Hirsch paint in quarts brushes on and flows out without brush marks. I just did a 56 block with their Tbird red and you can't tell it was applied with a brush.. I would the imagine the ivory will do the same.

The block, heads and intake are off white (ivory is close), not yellow.

A correction to my earlier post: C&G Early Ford has the Cream color for the block in both spray and brush. They do not have the valve cover Red

Bill Hirsch told me that the 1955 Packard Ivory was close but not exact.

C&G did say that the Valve covers are a Chevy orange red. I am trying to get some chips. Will keep you posted.

Have you any updates yet?

George

I talked to C & G Early Ford Auto Parts - their Technical Department says that the paint they carry for the 54 V* engine block is the exact factory original color. They have it made from the original formula.
I received the following answer from Martin Senour to my question in reference to the Martin Senour cited original color code provided by Tom H.

A contact request was submitted on the Martin Senour website at 2018-01-31 18:15:19. The following information was submitted:

Comments:
Restoring a 1954 Ford v8. Need engine paint - I was told that it is a Martin Senour Paint, Cream or Ivory and with a number: #99L-11562. No luck finding it on your web site. Can you tell me where to get it and what I should ask for? Any help is appreciated.

ANSWER:
George,

The 99 series paint has been obsolete for many years. The closest mix we have in acrylic enamel would be in the Crossfire line, mix # 1801570.
Thank you,

Rose Gasper
