Survey on color--The last GT I owned, a '67, was originally a blue 
car, but had a black diaphram and supports.  I stripped it of OEM 
paint, and it was always black.  My current '64 roadster (G engine) 
has a black shell, so no telling.

Logically speaking, it may have been that early cars had the support 
assembled with the car and painted body color, but someone may have 
realized early on that it was better to leave it off until the engine 
was installed (does anyone have factory pic of the assembly line?). 
Or they really came in different colors, and the guy on the floor 
grabbed from the correct bin, until the day there was a strike in the 
shoip that made the Iris Blue ones, the whole line came to a halt in 
sympathy,  and someone decided it would make sense that they were all 
one color, out of the same bin...
