Plastikote is made by Rustoleum. It is not crap paint!! The #208 Engine Enamel mentioned by Torpedo is very close to the original engine color for '59-'65 and is very good to work with. If you want something a little darker, but also a good product, #1610 from Duplicolor works well, also.
Two cans will do the whole engine and intake manifold. If you can't find it locally, PM me as I have some of each on hand and can get it locally.
The first picture below is Duplicolor #1610, the other Plastikote #208.
