I concur. Willys America has done some engine restorations that can be seen on this page. The pictures should give you an idea:

It looks like the block and head and bellhousing are silver/light gray, and the transmission and transfer case are black. The starter and accessories are also black it looks like. I used POR-15 engine enamel in aluminum color and it came out looking great. I want to say originally they used more of a light gray, but I'm not 100%. The silver looks great however.
