Green Cleveland
#1
Anyone ever seen Ford engine blocks that were painted Green?

I have a 73 Cleveland block that has green paint every where, not a trace of Blue.

I spoke with a friend who was in the Service for Ford dealers for many years and he says he's seen green engines/blocks before from rebuilders who were authorized by FoMoCo to supply replacement engines to dealers.

Any of y'all heard of this? My engine also has a wadded up aluminum tag that is affixed to the block just above the pan rail that I suspect is a rebuilder's tag. I'll have to get the block upended on the stand to unfold it and see what it actually is.

That's kinda what I was suspecting from finding the tag affixed to the block. When I get a better look at it I'll post a pic if it is indeed a rebuilder tag.
