'66 289--Painted Intake Bolts?
« on: June 09, 2010, 10:22:13 PM »
I have a '66 fastback with the original 289.  The car was built December 13th, 1965, at the Dearborn plant.  I've tried to get the engine bay as close to concours-correct as possible.  One remaining question I have: should the intake manifold bolts be painted blue?
