kallex--wow that looks great!! I am leaning yellow,but if I paint it red -it will remind me that it was from the 1960 and not a 1956. My 56 would look and run great with that Swedish yblock!! haha!!!
My roadrunner was a 69 1/2 440 6 pac and I have had many of them. Some in pieces ,but got toooo expensive,so I build 56 ford trucks and they cost toooo much now-haha!!! Thanks--Bill

Yeah I LIKE that yellow and chrome!

The light green (Flathead) looks an awful like a Detroit Diesel (which I like too!!)

that flathead does remind me of a detroit diesel also-haha!! I guess it will be another yellow yblock,then!! Still -it seems crazy to paint an engine yellow--it doesn't cover as well as red and being a light color -gets greasy easy---weird!!....Bill

Yea--Ht I saw that--my problem is---I know the correct answer. I need to know when putting a 1960 yblock that is red into a 1956 F100 that should be yellow--which color do you choose? I think yellow,but will end up spraying it this weekend. I will post pics. Bill
