Non Canadian question from a Canadian


I am in the process of refurbishing a 1952 National Pontiac ambulance. Was definitely an American car. I have been told the block in Canadian and American cars were different colours. Could someone help in directing me to the proper colour and a source if possible. Thanks in advance.

I have to check the present colour today but believe it is medium blue. My understanding was it was to be a dark green. Thanks for the posts.

The car was redone in the late 80's and now is almost a robins egg blue, which I suspect is not correct.
