Chrysler Dodge Plymouth Engine Paint Guide

Engine Paint Collage One of the questions we often get here is "What's the right engine color for my Mopar?". Not only were there many colors to pick from, but in addition one particularly famous color - Hemi Orange - has more than one variant. I have seen people many times tell me that the color pigments must be off because the color doesn't look quite right. Of course, this is mainly due to the fact that the wrong color paint is being used to begin with!

To remedy this situation, we have published a guide that shows what color goes with what engine - and we cover the most important years for you restoration addicts out there: 1960-1974. 

Once you have the correct color, you can find our complete line of Mopar Engine Paint here.
