My Dad's 55 New Yorker had the 331 and it was sliver and black.

Black would be for the accessories like P/S pump, Generator, distributor, Fan/pulleys (crank balancer would be silver), Spark plug wire covers, starter, Breather cap/pipe, Filters, crankcase breather, and air cleaner. See picture of 1951 engine lower on the link (Top picture is the 392 with was different).
