Ford Tractor Paint Colors

The Following is a collection of notes for now:

  • Carl Davis Confirms from 1948 to 1957 tractors were Blood Red.  1958 to 1962 They switched to Orange Red Color

Ron and Don Church always give me a hard time about not using GOOD paint on my restorations so starting with the 4000 and 641 restorations I switched from Tractor Supply Enamel to PPG Shop-line JE Acrylic Enamel.  Our Local PPG Dealer is:
