Restored 67 TH400 Paint Details and/or Pictures Wanted


Does anyone have the details of what finishes, colors, paint, etc should be on a 67 TH400? I am not doing a concours restoration, but want it to look right. Any pictures would be helpful. I know that most of it is bare, but interested in the pan and other covers, etc.

Original T400 cases were raw natural alum. The original pan was natural steel, so were pan bolts. Have quite a few short tail T400's in the racks, have had nearly two dozen 67-74 short tails built over the years. On the '67, 68, 69's T400's, I've never ran across any evidence of stenciled two letter ID codes & I've had quite a few fairly clean cores that had never been rebuilt. Eventually a stenciled two letter code went on the top of the case. have examined stenciled codes on several '70 & 71 T400's. The alum ID tag on the side will have the production year, the two letter code, & an assembly number. There are reproduction tags avail with no assembly numbers stamped, but nearly all have the wrong color silkscreened background. Vaccum modulators are a slightly dull gloss black, they are the original canister style, not what one typically gets aftermarket today. Most rebuilders disassemble, clean in a spin washer, blow out, let air dry & then after assembly spray bomb the outside of the case with aluminum paint...not a fan.
