1928 -29 engine colours

Firstly what is the correct color for the engine on a 1928 Hudson? Secondly was it the same for 1929 Hudson engines? Was the head a different color to the block or the same?

    In 29, the head and block were a fairly dark green. The crankcase and rocker cover were natural aluminum.

    Probably Model A Ford suppliers would have it.
