I have a 58 chevy pickup short bed fleet side I have had for 20 years + the motor has always been yellow and it has a vin number of F324C I inquired about it through GM and they asked me where I got this motor. I was told by the previous owner that it was the original color yellow and he thought it was a GM plant leftover and had been put in this truck when the cameos stopped production and the metal fleetside started. Another source told me he thought they were used in the big trucks. Any clues?

55 56 part of 57 265–283 was yellow from the factory. The factory never ever put a previous year engine in a current year truck or car. Somebody else did or it has been painted or replaced by an independent shop with a replacement engine of a different year.
