I MIGHT BE WRONG, BUT I THINK THE HOOD WAS BLACK. THEN WAS COVERED WITH A LAYER OF FIBERGLASS. A CHILTON'S AUTO MANUAL BOOK MIGHT GIVE THIS INFO. OR TRY A FORD DEALER. GOOD LUCK.

99% car color. I can't find any literature on it but any restored original I've seen, under the hood is the same color as the car. I also have a few restoration books that show good pics of the engine compartment and all no matter what engine are the same as the car.
