Sorry can't remember what color the Ansen Bells were painted.... do recall the Lakewood Bell housings were red.

I assume you have an "older" cast IRON model???? Recall some had "NHRA" embossed on the case.

I would "sandblast" it and apply a flat clear coat to help protect the finish/look.

Yes John I have the old cast iron bellhousing. The bottom portion unbolts and is embossed with the saying APP BY NHRA. Pretty cool old piece , heavy little rascal thou.

I've seen so many Ansens over the years, but it's been years since I saw a new one! I really can't remember for sure, but I thought they came unpainted, and the customer painted them to match their particular brand of car's color. I've seen them in every color imaginable, and usually just matching the engine color. So I'd probably do the same now, and match it to your engine color choice.
