Were these engines originally painted silver and if so than what years would have been this correct color and if not silver than what was original. Thanks

Not sure what year they started with silver for whole motor but every 34 dodge and Plymouth engine in Australia has been Silver and 30U has been black with silver head, when I acquired my 30U block had been painted maroon red  ,think I will go black for that later on.

I am very sure that the 28 & 29 were black with a silver head.  The trademark Silver Dome.  Just when they painted the whole engine silver you may want to pose that question on the POC site.  




Sorry I now realize that you were speaking about the Dodge.

Chet, can you tell me more about the silverdome, was this Plymouth only engine, what was the reason for painting the head silver, what was special about it I guess? Stupid question prob. but whatever, wont know unless I ask.

The 34 still requires alot of things to put back on car, like roof , interior ,wiring ,lights and jewelery
So still have a while to go  , this motor set me back about 6 weeks !
Did you see video of engine start ? It smoked because gave it a few squirts of oil in each cylinder before start up.

What was refered to as the Silver Dome era ran from 1928 to 1948. According to the POC Judging Guides the pre-35 had black blocks and silver heads. After 35 the heads and block were bothe silver. Refer to the POC site, reference for all the Judging info including colors for most everything.

Interesting about engine colour scheme !
As you know I now have a correct motor for 34 Dodge , it looks to be in untouched condition by wiring and accessories and is all silver and I am wondering if all export motors for 34 were all silver ? Also every motor for this era ( in Australia ) has been silver . Would it be possible colour was changed for export ?
