A source for engine paint

July 1, 2011 | By Richard Prince


I have a 1954 Packard 4-door Clipper with a straight 8 engine and automatic transmission. Where can I get the original orange paint for the engine?


I wasn’t aware that 1954 Packard engines were orange. Virtually all of them that I’ve seen or worked on were grey or bronze. Regardless, you should be able to buy the correct color engine enamel for your car from Bill Hirsch Auto (hirschauto.com).
