It's a harder question to answer than it seems from the research I've done. As others have said, there are definitely pictures of unrestored cars with blue blocks, manifolds, heads, and surge tanks. A lot of the refurbished cars have black, but I'm guessing some of the original blocks had black. It all comes down to what you prefer between the two--I suspect either would be "period correct".
