engine paint color code

Maybe this could be in the paint forum however as it deals with the engine here it is. Does anybody have the paint mixing codes for the GM orange engine color. I have done some searching but have not found it. Thanks

Not sure if this is any help but you used to could go to GM and get the color the factory used. The chevrolet orange you buy in the parts store wasn`t even close to how good the GM orange looked. It should still be avalible from any GM parts counter, but don`t quote me on that.

it was a reddish orange, if you look at the late 60s sbc engine such as the 307 and 327 they are almost totally red, real close, and in the GM equipment options sheets at least for the trucks GM listed the color as red

i could scan pages, but theres no paint code for it, just the name red

good luck
