  • FORD TRACTOR BLUE PAINT - FOLLOWUP
  • Here is the paint test I did with the two shades sold by CNH. One is the 63-00 Shade, the other is the New Holland Blue. The NH Blue is lighter as was expected. The shade I am seeking is the Ford Equipment Blue, MX700790, and will be getting my local parts store to mix up a batch for me soon.

  • I've been happy with the Krylon Farm and Implement Ford Blue. Appearance may be slightly darker than the 63-00 shade, definitely not a bright blue. When comparing various colors on line, rather than using photographs, I've been going to the manufacturer's web pages and pulling their HEX or RGB color codes they use to create the swatches on their web page. I assume they agonize over showing the closest RGB equivalent to the real colors. Here's a table of various blue colors using the RGB codes to generate swatches. This is the best way I've found to compare colors from various manufacturers.










    ____ MX700825 or M1639 Ford Tractor Blue
    ____ M1467 Ford Tractor Diesel Blue
    ____ WT8096 or MX700790 Ford Tractor Dark Blue
    ____ WT8027 Ford Tractor Blue
    ____ WT8050 Ford Tractor Blue
    ___ 1936 Krylon Ford Tractor Blue
    ___ 280131 Rustoleum Ford Tractor Blue
    ___ 7727 Rustoleum Royal Blue

  • Yes, the 700790 Dark Blue is the Equipment Blue that I am seeking. My local auto parts store called it up, it is a good number, and they can get the computerize OEM recipe and mix it right there. They did this back in 2001 for me with John Smith's red shade he used on his 8Ns. He said he found the 1985 Code 81 GM Centari Red to be very close to original. Here is the old post for that:

  • I just noticed one of the colors in my chart may be the one you are looking for, so I moved it next to the Krylon color I used.
