Boy things have sure changed in this forum, the mere mention of paint used to bring a waterfall of comments and opinions!

Well for the early 8N's at least 48, 49, 50 I believe International Harvester Farmall Red, that was what Harold Brock noted at one time, was the same color used. Tisco has it I believe #110. I used that color on my 48, but rather with DuPont Nason 2K urethane (expensive) which has hardener and leaves a long lasting glossy finish.

I matched it to a sample sprayed of the Tisco. For the grey I found the Tisco med grey for the 8N was a perfect match for the original under the hood sample I polished out.

I believe the later 8N 51 and 52 used a slightly orange tinted red.
