  • Paint
  • Over the winter I plan on reimbursing 3 of my red belly tractors, I absolutely refuse to use that orange/red color paint that ford started using in 19??, I don't necessarily need to go to the OEM color of late 40's -50's, I would be happy with A nice red that others have used that make a sweet looking tractor.
    Also what grey are we using?, Kinda like that grey/olive color.
    Thanks

    later,dave

  • HiYa Dave-
    If you aren't going for a full blown all-out restoration and spending beaucoup bucks on paint, I've found the TISCO paint works well. It's made in the USA by Van Sickle Paint Co. The IHC RED TP-110 is the closest match to the original Ford Vermillion made today. This was verified by Harold Brock and Carl Davis years ago. The FORD MED Grey also come close to the grey shade too with the Case IronGard coming in second. All other Ford shades, including the ones listed by TISCO are way too orangy for my tastes. Steve Dabrowski also used the TISCO on his early 8N.


    FORD TRACTOR TISCO PAINT SHADES:

    9N/2N = TISCO M2888

    8N = FORD VERMILLION (RED)M-2822 - TISCO IH TP110 CLOSEST MATCH

    8N (AND UP) = FORD MEDIUM GREY TISCO TP-13243

    8N (AND UP) = *CNH IRON-GARD© ®™ M1J-957 SE4DS

    *NOTE: CNH brand says used '39/62' but that isn't right. This is the FORD MEDIUM GREY and not used on the 39-47 Models. CNH no longer makes a Ford M2888 Dark Grey shade.

  • My favorite was Tru Values Xo-rust Xo6 red, no longer available, Rust Oleum Sunrise red was OK, no longer available at least in these parts. Had to settle for Coronado Rust Scat OSHA red, I like it, a very rich and glossy nice red. For best paint jobs I liked John Smiths Centari #'s for red and the gray. Centari is gone, Exalta bought them and have not tried their version of centari colors, should be fine though.

  • I like RustOLeum Sunrise Red. It's available many places & is close (but no cigar!) to Ford reds.
