    Default 81 Mustang I6 3.3L Engine - Factory Original Color??

    Hello, can someone advise as to the correct factory original color for the 81 Mustang I6 3.3L engine. I know the valve cover should be Ford blue, but need to know for the engine block and the oil pan. Any assistance will be greatly appreciated as we just received the engine back from the rebuilder. Thanks in advance.

    No idea myself on that particular engine, but Googling pics of that engine and trying to zoom in on what look like original or unadulterated blocks, the ones that aren't all rusty appear to Ford blue. For whatever that's worth....

    Thanks; I did the same but couldn't come to a good conclusion as to whether the block is Ford blue or natural. Still hoping that someone knowledgeable will come through with the answer!
