Since my car is in pieces and I’m going to rebuild the 289, I need to get some ideas on how to “dress” the engine bay. I don’t want to end up with an abomination of blue, red, yellow, black and chrome - so pop your hoods!

I’ll get it started ;)

Mostly stock on the outside. I used a 14×3 Accel Kool Blue gauze filter for a little more airflow with the chrome air cleaner. Easily swapped for the OE type for a clean look.

Mine has a fox body 5.0, so I chose to paint it 80's ford grey, including the aluminum heads and intake just because I like the clean look of it all being one color.

The thing I'm happiest with: hiding the wiring as much as possible. I ran the engine harness in the fenderwells to clean things up.
The thing I'd like to change: hook up the A/C so it's not just an idler pulley for the serpentine setup.

First thing pull or wrap the wiring and get in there with a spray bottle of Dawn and a pressure washer.

Mine definitely needs a cleaning, but here is the engine bay of my 1968 coupe with the original 289. Was rebuilt 2 years ago and have been running an AOD since around 2014

I did mine with the same goal in mind. I wanted to minimize the number of colors used and ended up reducing it to one. . . .RED! I went so far as to have the air cleaner and fan shroud stickers printed in red. I like the effect.
