Someone had made the claim they ordered a new glass bottle, and the ebay seller sent them a mayonnaise Jar.

I have a couple of questions regarding the colors.  My 1961 which I strongly believe when I purchased it was a low mileage unmolested original  has some discrepancies from the above color list. For the most part all of the paint colors in the listing above were what my car had with a few exceptions.  The brake booster (Delco) is not semi gloss black but a faded gold anodized and the master cylinder was natural cast. My understanding from the company that rebuilt my brake booster is that the Delco Moraines were gold anodized and the Bendix were black. The washer jar bracket on my car is natural tin and not painted semi gloss black and no signs that it ever was black. Also the power steering pump pulley still had some Cadillac Blue paint on it which I believe to be original and no signs that it ever was semi gloss black.  I know there are some question marks on some of these in the above listing, but curious if anyone else's cars seemed to follow the same colors I have found on my engine and in my engine bay!  I really strive to restore my car correctly and at one time someone told me that the power steering pump cap should be natural and not painted so I stripped it down to bare metal only to find out later that was incorrect information and have since painted it gloss black. Thoughts?  Doug
