John remember these parts were made by different vendors different places and some painted by the vendor not all at ford so the shades of semi-gloss black may vary depending on the paint they used at that time.

John - all of the original paint oil coolers I have seen were almost flat black.  I believe the ones on restored cars that are gloss or SG are incorrect.

Correct jim and the oil coolers were dipped and have lots of noticable paint drips on the 1 outer edge.

Would the paint they use at the Radiator shops be close for the oil cooler ?

There is a stamp that states 2 coats epoxy - Is that the same paint ?

Thanks,

John

I have a photo of a very nice original that shows the paint and the drips Ed is referring to pretty well.  Send me an email and I will reply with the photo.  Apparently can't post it here.
