1965 Impala undercarriage color

I am planning on putting my 65 Impala 2 door on a rotisserie in the next week or so. My car is from Arizona and doesn't have any rust at all. I want to repaint the floor underside and wasn't sure how it should be done to be correct. Is the underside of the floor supposed to be body color, satin black or something else? How about the firewall directly behind the engine in the engine bay? Satin black or body color? Any advice would be much appreciated! Thanks!

The underside of the body is a subject of debate. It is pretty safe that any paint they got was sparse and mostly overspray black. The firewall is black on all USA made cars, body color on Canadian made. And by the way, most semi gloss black paints are too glossy. A safer bet is satin.
