When you have over 500 pieces of original gas pump literature and each state the height, weight, etc., then it says "red" after color, you tend to believe the standard color of pumps coming from the companies is "red." There always exceptions as I mentioned above.
I did pull my eight page Wayne 490 series brochure I have and my four original ads for the "Greek" 490 pump, there is no mention of the color. It does mention that the pumps are "sprayed with a special metal primer and then finished with a special weather resisting paint" but again no color mentioned.
