I am restoring a 1965 Barracuda and my engine guy and I are going back and forth on the correct engine color. I think it should be red and he thinks it should be blue. I have photos of red engines. What is the correct color for 1965?

You're right and he's completely wrong, unless this 1965 Barracuda is a Canadian-market one with a 170 engine, in which case he's still wrong, just less so—in that case the engine should be the same turquoise as U.S. 1969 Slant-6s. See here and here for more detail about correct underhood paints.

This one is pretty easy/basic to get right; if yours is the kind of restoration where these details matter (for whatever reason), you probably have reasonable grounds to suspect other decisions your guy has made.

Too many people who were born on third base actually believe they've hit a triple.
