We recently purchased another Jubilee to use as a parts tractor and are very glad we did. Amazing how going through one for the "best of" works out. But this has sparked a curiosity that is ongoing. We often run into Jubilees that are painted blue. We also see red over blue over red. We like the traditional colors of course and certainly want that, but what's the deal? Were some tractors made blue originally? I heard somewhere that some highway departments ordered them blue but never saw any confirmation of that. Is this someone painting a '53 to make it look newer to imitate newer Ford tractors? Anyway, we now have a lovely blue hydraulic pump in great working order bolted onto our red Jubilee, and a blue hydraulic fluid reservoir. The blue running boards from the parts tractor are in much better shape than on the good one, but I'll strip and repaint these before swapping them out. Anyone have any info?
