All of these parts would be GPW grey, same as the engine. However not all the
accessories would be black on a GPW. They used a high percentage of OD parts
in the engine compartment as opposed to Willys who used semi-gloss black.
Maybe this changed as time went on but my own understanding of GPWs is that
these parts are more likely to be OD than black: Radiator, Fan (but not the
water pump), Air cleaner crossover tube, Carburator elbow, Fuel filter (if
mounted on the fire wall), steel radiator tubes (sometimes). The
rest;generator, starter, voltage regulator, aircleaner, would be BLACK or;
coil, manifolds, oil pump, distributor, water pump, radiator steel tubes
(othertimes) accelerator linkage and spring would be GPW Grey.
