Didn’t have a lot of choice. Our 56 is Colonial White and Peacock Blue.
As I sit here thinking about it, my project ‘57 Chevy Sedan is very likely to change from a black firewall to white.

Only just seen this thread.
White firewall on my sons "A"
I like to see them, as someone's already said clinical and clean.
I'm surprised this thread has been going for 5 years and this is the only explanation for white firewalls. I would like to add another. Back in the 40s, 50s and early 60s, if you were racing circle or drag, about the only light available was around the track. If you had to work on your car in the pits after dark, it was generally by flashlight. The best way to maximize that light was by reflecting it off white firewalls, fenders and frames. It started at the track and quickly found it's way to the street just like so many other looks.
I’ve always liked the look, so the ‘58 got a white firewall. Ford HP White with satin clear...
White with stickers

Not bright white like it looks, but Chrysler cream.
Here is my contribution. I used white tractor paint from Tractor Supply, thinned and hardener added and shot in my old Craftsman spray gun. Turned out pretty good.
Here is one in focus....
Far from finished, but the firewall is white.
Love the engine color Nailhead!
More cream than white but close enough. Maybe not. Let me know. How about off white. lol.
Paint them white so you can get them dirty.
I think it looks good!
