Default Transmission color ?

Iíve started the restoration of my 66 MK1A and noticed the transmission is painted blue. Anybody else seen this on their original cars ?

Found some factory check marks under the grime & rust on them from time-to-time but no real color.

Default Trans colour

When I had mine rebuilt, I chose the cast iron paint, it gives the natural colour while protecting it from the elements. I thought it looked pretty nice when it was finished.
