I have documented the 261 engine colours in the following thread. Unfortunately the codes are not known.

I have a 62 parisienne and the 261 engine in it is painted GM racing green.
It is the exact color because the car was my dads and he never painted the engine.
I bought the paint at Dura chemical in hamilton
Hope this helps ya

Is that  high heat paint? Any more details on the product as I would love to post this on the engine colour thread. I am assuming it is the darker of the engine colours used.

Ray, sorry, the link does not work. (although the topic can be found with a search)

I wonder if anyone ever compared Detroit Diesel green to the reference photos?

Thanks.
Here is the info on that GM Racing Green paint.
It's Dupli-Color  Racing Green .
Cap # DE1644
And  UPC label code is CDE1644 Racing Green.
Like I was saying it is the exact color because I never painted the valve cover or breather cap but I did do the block and oil pan and there is no difference in color.
Agian Hope this help .eh!
