I believe the big block manifolds were entirely painted and the paint burned off on the hotter areas leaving paint around the bolted areas. It actually just flakes off rather than burning. Here is a quote from John Hinkley on another discussion. http://www.camaros.org/forum/index.php?topic=9898.0
"Your photos look fine to me. Iron-intake big-blocks didn't get any masking, and the bypass hose was pretty much completely painted; aluminum-intake big-blocks did get a mask, and their bypass hoses will show somewhat less paint than on an iron-intake car. Tonawanda painted the big-block engine with the exhaust manifolds in place, and they had lots of paint, as shown by the photo on the Camaro assembly line. Flint V-8 (small-blocks), on the other hand, installed the exhaust manifolds AFTER engine painting starting in 1965, so post-'64 Flint-built small-block exhaust manifolds won't show any paint.
Attached is a photo from 1967 assembly line showing a full size car with BB with manifolds completely painted. George

I know this is an older post but I wanted to add an engine pic of a small block Nova when it was new on the lot of Mann Chevrolet.

Side note:  You can see the tail pan of the LeMans 69 in this next photo.  Not Gloss.

That looks like an exhaust manifold (on a '69 small block engine) that has a significant amount of engine paint on it....??

   In addition, I've had a conversation recently about if today's replacement brake lines using colored end connectors existed in the first gen or were they just plain steel color. In this picture I see what looks like green end caps on the brake line attached to the master cylinder front output.
 I also noticed the left fender splash shield is not tucked in as was originally stated they should be. And the upper control arm end cap definitely looks black.

Got to love these old photos for references.

Also master cylinder not painted vs semi gloss black..  Need to confirm all years but sure looks like 69 was not painted.

Always figured master cylinders were cast. Suckers bet on exhaust manifolds ,how long to burn the paint off? Mine have no trace of paint and were removed soon after the car was bought That Nova probably just rolled off the trailer to the lot. Surprised on the fittings. Mine are OE with no trace of color. Maybe a light spray for ID which quickly wore off ?  What wouldn't you want off that lot Darrell ?? Sort of depressing--I would have been 3 when the pic was taken. Novas ? Never really popular or considered muscle cars around here back in the day. Work cars. When I was a kid growing up, everybody's dad in the neighborhood parked their "work car or truck in the street" Lot of Novas. My Dad had one. Cheap, easy to work on, dependable and he didn't care about it. Although same platform as a Camaro. Same goes for mid-late 60's Impalas- Dad called them "old man cars"  Still does ! Now a following.

Master cylinders were painted. You can see the crummy paint in the pic. The paint didn't stick well, esp if the MC was rusty.

The brake line nuts were anodized different colors.

The best car I've ever seen to show both of these was a 69 Corvair with 40 miles on it. No miles and a protected brake system - the colors were clear.

That engine paint sure looks a lot lower gloss than what I typically see on repainted ones.

Back home in Costa Rica (was in Panama for a couple of weeks). Not a snowbird - living here for a year.

Engine paint should be lower gloss.....
