do not know about the numbers/letters

but did read some time ago about the color

one of the top managers was riding a train out west and went through the wheat country.

thought the color of the wheat looked nice.

got back and directed they change the color of allis chambers from green to the orange color.

again, just read that somewhere long ago. but for some reason they did change color.

I think the ferguson paint buyers just painted their tractors whatever color that was cheapest that year during the late fifty's.
gray, green, cream, red.

Actually, I think it was a field of poppies, not wheat. Wheat is not orange.

am sure you are right on the color id, it was a long time ago that I read the information

but, I do remember it was an interesting story of how the color got changed.

It would be interesting to know what inspired the choice of color for ALL tractors. 'Course we all know that John Deere chose GREEN so their tractors could hide in the weeds and watch the other tractors actually get the work done. LOL
