  • Rear wheel color on 9n
  • Does anyone have the correct paint code (silver) for rear wheels (not inner rims) on 1941 9n. S/N 66645. Thanks.

  • Like farmer Dan I also use and would recommend the Rustoleum Hammered silver.

  • There is no paint code for the rear hat rims. Originally, they were cad plated. Ditto for the original early 6-loop rims as well. Restorers use a good wheel paint like the CASE SILVER ARGENT I used shown in my picture below. Avoid the cheap metallic shades as they will fade and rub off after two years. ALL lug nuts were cad plated too -no paint on 9N,2N, or 8N. 9N/2N front wheels were painted Ford M2888 Dark Gray. 8N front rims painted Ford Medium (8N) Gray.

  • I used a quart of Rustoleum Hammered Metal Silver. Has held up great and still looks like they were just painted.
