Engine Paint Color Edsel E475

Post by Low58Corsair » Mon 30. Nov 2009, 15:32

I'm wondering what paint is closest to the factory green & off white engine paint to the factory colors on an E475?

Bill Hirsch automotive supplies has Edsel green in high temp. enamel. It's available in quarts. The off-white is available in the Rust-oleum brand or you can use Ford wimbelton white. You may want to visit/join either of the two Edsel chat sites. They are bothe on yahoo groups; edselmail and edsel restoration and preservation. Good luck with your car!!

Thanks! I've been trying to find that out, all I've found is the Porsche green on the edsel.com site. I joined the yahoo groups but there doesn't seem to be any real organization, I wish there was an actual edsel forum.

I used the Porsche Green and had the local paint shop put it in rattle cans. Here's a link to the picture of the Edsel 410 that was painted with that particular paint. Still holding up well at this point with over 6K miles on the engine.

Big Engines are quick but it's hard to beat the fun that comes from running a normally aspirated Y-Block at 8.80's and 147 mph in the quarter.
