Another alternative would be Alpine Green which was used on Detroit Diesels and later DH ToroFlow engines. From what I've seen U.S. built GMC's with the inline sixes from 64-66 unlike Chevrolet were Moly Orange rather than that green color.

64 was the first year the Chevrolet inline six was introduced on U.S. built GMC trucks and it was step down option called the I series with just the 230 six being available on pickup model trucks. In 66 they introduced the 250 to replace it, brochures only listed the 250 for the I series but I've seen a 66 1000 pickup with a factory installed 292 and the VIN plate confirmed it.

thnx for the info., I guess ill go with the green. Detroit green has a better ring than mopar . so I can live with it . I think I read in a old post that was possibly the orig. colour for 292 . my p/u was for sure the bottom of the herd . I don't believe it had one option . a heater , but I imagine that was standard by 64 didn't realize at the time , I was posting a pic of my model .not my 55 . very small pic in album . very easy build though ,paint was about .25 cents .this is the real thing . and my 71 . it came out with a 250 . not a v-6 in the herd , yet!!! thnx again bill
