NO.

Ford blue hardly existed untill the first porcelain grill badges on the Model A's (28-31). The engine bock on Model A's is green. I belive T's are the same but let me check my Model T color guide and I will get back to you.

According to Sacramento Vintage Ford black was used from 1909-1925 and changed to green in 1926. hope this helps.

Here is a shot of the 1927 T touring my dad and I still need to finish

Considering you're asking about the stock engine colors on these, I'm assuming that you're building a stock version with a four-banger. My Model T model is just a bit more wild than that. Laughing

Yes, the '23. It was an old kit from the 70's.

The kit that I am building is a re-release of an old AMT kit it has two complete car kits that can be built in 11 different configs, you get to build one in anyone of five stock configs and the other in anyone of six hotrod configs....very cool kit with awsome tires. I got it for 14 bux at hobby lobby with their daily 40% off coupon. Breck
