Brush-painted orange plug wire supports are very common on original '69-up Corvette L-46 (350/350) and LT-1 (350/370) engines, with various colors of lifting brackets (silver, natural, orange) in no particular pattern, and '63-'67 Corvette engines with aluminum intakes and valve covers had the area on the heads between the intake and the valve covers (that was covered by the plastic mask in the paint booth) sprayed silver/aluminum, which frequently included the intake manifold bolt heads.

Interesting facts. Way more detail in doing a perfect factory restore if your going that route.

Nope. It is in good hands though. I have a high mileage one with a engine covered in 43 years of grease. It also has non orange engine lift brackets.

Charley, I really like the pics of the 1100 mile 70 Z, your engine compartment looks very similar to mine at 46k.
 SBMaino this is a good example of "original".
Any other 69 Z or camaro in general claiming to be "all original unrestored" yet all the finishes in the engine compartment are pristine, is fooling himself.

"IN RUST WE TRUST"
you just can't beat that original patina of a unrestored car in my opinion.

I pulled a set of original front spiral shocks off of my 6 cylinder car. I have not looked at them that closely. However they are original and I may will to part with them. PM if interested.

Just a quick post here to clarify here.  On Han's engine, I did paint where the intake meets the cylinder head.  I do this is many cases so that area does not rust.  There are variations in this area and sometimes there is a light over spray of orange in this area.  Other original cars have no paint there.  So, restoring your engine gives you several options and how you want to do it.

Regarding engine lift hooks, I have seen them both ways on Z28's.  Painted orange and not painted (natural) or silver in color.  I have inspected and looked at dozens of original survivor cars since the late 1980's and no two seem to be identical.  Again, it's up to the restorer.  If he likes them orange, do them that way.  If you want them natural then that is good too.  Either will net you full points in the "Legend Certification."   I have many original photos both ways.

Hope this helps.

Makes sense Jerry.  Thanks for the clarification.   I'm very pleased with the way the engine was restored by you.

Thanks Jerry that is great info. I recently noticed silver paint on my reverse lockout linkage, original to car as far as I know. Not on the rods however.

Related to the plug wire stands for a 69Z - i believe earlier someone stated the intake bolts for these items are painted/brushed orange?   

is this correct for the 69Z?  maybe 70 but im having a hard time believing this with some of the survivor cars i looked at. 

Jerry - thoughts?

Here is a 69 Z28 project on Ebay. Notice the silver paint still left on the engine lift bracket. I can't figure out how to link just the pic.

It appears someone may have purchased themselves a nice Z28... very little molestation to that one for 44 years, but the first thing I'd do is remove those ugly houndstooth floor mats..  Smiley    Then i'd wash it good *G*
