  • Paint Code For SOS Gold Demonstartor
  • HiYa Gang-
    FYI -Tony Jacobs wrote in the current issue of the Ford-Fordson Collectors Association JOURNAL, Fall 2015, Volume 22 Issue 3 that he researched the paint code used on Ford Gold Demonstrator Tractors and found it was the same one used on the 1959 gold Lincoln automobiles. It is:

    99L-13167, made by Martin-Senour Paints and available at NAPA.

  • Need some clarification as to the Martin-Senour number given. It would be helpful to know what the Ford M-# and sales name(s) area.

    For 1959, here is what I have in my lists for a gold color from T-bird and Lincoln:
    Data plate codes: K (T-bird), 92 (Lincoln)
    Sales Name: Sandstone Metallic (Gold)(T-bird), Burnished Gold Poly (Lincoln)
    Ford M-#: 1073
    Manufacturer numbers:
    Ditzler Lacquer/Enamel - DAL/DQE 21648
    DuPont Dulux # - 181-17009
    Martin Senour Lacuqer - 30Y-2912 (Acrylic)
    Martin Senour Synthol - 90T-3593

    Obviously, the Martin Senour numbers I have listed do not match the one in the Ford-Fordson collector article. This probably means another paint line/material (i.e. a different type of lacquer or enamel) was referenced. And regretfully, these numbers won't help with today's formulations other than to be able to find an old color chip to attempt a match with. I do have a few additional resources to check, though, to narrow down what the Lincoln color/Ford M-# was.

  • What was Ford's M-number for it? And what was the Lincoln color's sales name?
