I just pulled out my Year One catalog.  It shows for 1968: 273, 318, 
360, and 340 are painted Red.   383, 400, 440, 426 w/ Carter are painted 
Turquoise, and 426 Hemi 2- 4 barrels are street Hemi Orange.

1969 - 1971 Most 383 & 440 HP engines were street Hemi orange.  Most non 
HP big blocks were painted Turquoise.
