Default Willys engine color

Does anyone know what color Willys originally painted the super hurricane six cylinder? I've got a cylinder head that I want to use as wall art, but Google image search hasn't been very definitive as to what color the factory painted them.

High altitude engines were red

I believe some were Normandy Blue, and some may have been a silver or green color as well. There were several colors through the years.

Well, I guess that explains it. Those are all the colors I kept seeing when I tried to search. I never would have thought they changed it so often. Thanks.

Yeah, car engines had another palette too, I think they were maroon or silver.
