Last time I looked SAAC had an incorrect set of facts about Tigers.
Ford controlled the engine configuration and the color. TBON makes a very general statement about what color the engine is painted by Vin#. This is not a precise answer.
All 260 engines were painted black until the B19KC engine group. Ford change engine color to Blue for the 1966 Model year, Aug 1965. The last build for the B19KC engine group was in the Fall of 1965 – these 260 engines were painted Blue and had generators. Ford put Tags and date codes on these engines so it is still possible to determine what color the engine should be painted assuming these indicators are still present. I’ll glady help anyone with these questions.
I would also like to see more partisipation with my Engine Study.
