The drums would be chassis colored until they got hot enough to burn the paint off and turn rusty.

I used to work at a Ford dealer who serviced vehicles up to class 8 over the road tractors. Can't recall ever seeing a drum that wasn't rust colored on a vehicle with over 3,000 miles. The chassis paint was sprayed over the otherwise bare iron drums so that the customer would by a new vehicle with already rusty looking brake drums. The replacement drums in the parts department had an oily coating so they didn't look rusty either.
