Color should that be? Block? heads? valve covers?
My ideas thus far are:
1. ford red entire engine...
2. keep manifold/block the same with red for the heads and black for the covers
3. same as two but rally blue the heads
4. rally blue the entire engine except the covers be black
5. same as four but manifold be orig. aluminum
And ideas from the peanut gallery?
While I'm at it... in goes new clutch kit, resurface heads, valve seal guides... new head gaskets of course... maybe springs if they don't cost too much.

Personally I'd go with a Hemi orange / Chevy orange for the block, Aluminum for the heads, and orange on the Valve covers.
Matching orange, or black on the air cleaner.
Choice #2: Rally blue (or ford engine blue) everything except the heads.
Choice #3: Body color everything except the Valve Covers. Get those chrome plated. Powdercoat the carb to match!

my dad is doing this on the V-6 he is putting in his TR7, silver block and heads, blood red valve covers, dark blue manifold, looks nice.

I think red heads with black valve covers would look great, and keep the block plain or polish it.
