  • 861 paint scheme
  • Does anyone know the name of the red paint used on the 861? It does not appear to be the Vermillion red used on the 8N. I've read the posts and it is said to have an orange red tint. Also, was the 8n - Ford Medium Gray - used on the 861? Thanks.

  • Here's what I have in my notes for OEM paint colors:

    Ford Tractors 1958-1961

    Med Grey
    CNH: M1J-957-SE5DS
    Van Sickle: 457
    Ncomplete: LP-4862GPA
    PPG: 32675
    Centauri: 250202
    Van Sickle: 457
    Martin-Senour: M2J957

    And yes, the grey is the same as used on 8N's.

  • Thanks Bill.

    I think a read a post from you suggesting Easy Off Oven Cleaner as a stripper. If that was your suggestion, it it used both on the cast and the sheet metal?

  • Easy Off is basically lye with a gel to help it stick. I would use it for general degreasing as the lye really cuts through the crud - So, reserve use for cast parts only. If the sheet metal has been painted without a catalyst, the Easy Off could lift the paint and cause more problems than you need.

  • The Ford material code for this paint was M-2J956 Red Tractor Baking Enamel.
