Default 430 numbers?

Hi, I'm new to the forum and have been looking for numbers of 430's installed in Tbirds in 1959. Its probably been answered many times but I don't seem to be able to find any info. Also was wondering about original 430 engine colors in 1959. Thanks for any help!!

Hi Clyde! I am going to move this to the 430MEL Forum. Perhaps some of the guys there will be able to answer more of your questions if you have more to ask.
