Chevy Block Color?

I have a question for you guys. I know for a fact that in 72 Chevys block were painted orange, and in 79 they were painted blue. What year did this change?

The reason i as is that i was looking at buying what was called small block Chevy 350 ( orange in color) that was in a 1978 truck. so i got thinking that the motor was changed. I didn't say anything at the time and told him that if it was a 350 i'd take it. he called me back and didn't give me any numbers, but said that it came out 1976 305 camaro. so i guess a better question is did a 1976 camaro come with a 305 and would have it been painted orange?

Just have this feeling that the motor turned out to be something like a 327 or a 400 that he doesn't want to give up.

Thanks for any and all help
