Engine colour

Hi everyone. I was wondering what colour the engine was painted for the Tiger. Was it Ford blue, or were they a different colour.

Thanks Mal

The 'Book of Norman' correctly points out that MK1 (B947) Tigers had Black painted blocks. Norman Miller also points out that MK1A - really, late MK1's - (B3820) Tigers had Old Ford Blue painted blocks from approx B382000601. STOC takes Norman's word for that since only a couple of dozen MK1A's left Jensen in a right hand drive configuration (HROFE production).
