On both the 256 Y Blocks I have for my '54 Mercury the blocks are a lovely turquoise color with white valve covers with MERCURY written in red.

On closer look, however, the turquoise is clearly sprayed over a solid orange block. Both have the same peeling of the turquoise in spots with orange clearly showing through. Huh?

The color is called "ARGENT Silver"


My 292 will be John Deere yellow with argent silver valve covers!

You can post that in the Marketplace.

You may have to have a certain number of posts before you can do that though. I'm not certain of that.

This is awfully interesting and an never ending thread.Doing a little painting tonight so I did a search.My six in my 56 is yellow with with silver valve and black air cleaner.I am sure its 100% origional.My 56 Mercury was a light shade of green.I have seen silver covers and black ones with black air cleaners.These are canadian made.Same colour I assume as the aussy 56s spoke of in post 121 which would have been Canadian imports.
