      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

70's Dodge Truck Engine Color

4 posts in this topic

Posted

I'm trying to build a 1978 Dodge "Midnite Express" truck and I'm putting a 440 in it since they were known to have pretty much any motor you wanted including the 440. I can't find any pics of what the engine color would have been for Mopar big blocks in the trucks during that time. Does anyone have any pics or at least just and insight to help me?

Chrysler engine blue would be correct.

After the End of the Magnum motors and Hemi's everything went corporate blue.

Colloquially known as "1972 Blue" . Its shade differs from the 1971 & earlier "blue" (which is more grey-ish) , and is definitely a different shade than Chrysler Engine Turquoise .
