    Does anyone know what the OEM colors were for the 1973 K5 drivetrain? What I mean is engine (chevy orange?) and accessories, tranny and T-case (were these even painted at all?), etc. Is there a source that provides specifics for resoration purposes?

    Thanks!

    I can't recall any application where GM painted the trans or transfercase. Although I think in some of the underbody shots for the brochures they did.:)

    You might also try re-posting this question in the Restoration Forum in a couple days. The engine being Chevy Orange was pretty common but as Dorian said, I have never seen a factory painted trans and/or transfer case.
