What you are seeing is the red oxide enamel primer under the paint. Every TO I have ever seen has it. The TO-30 I grew up with had never been painted but it had the red primer showing thru on the fenders and hood where the paint was worn thru. I have a TO-20 that I bought at a show a while back and it is original. I pulled the engine today and the gray paint is peeling and underneath it is the red oxide primer.

Yes the red was a primer it wore down to it on mine too and I know it had never been painted since Dad bought it new in "52 I painted it with expensive paint that I got from NAPA and it looks like it did when we got it.I have seen many that are darker gray and have heard that there really wasn"t a set formula it was what ever Harry could get the best deal on when he needed paint.

Not true about the paint. The tractors were made in the UK by Standard Motors who bought the paint in the UK. Detroit bought their own in the USA. HF had nothing to do with day to day manufacturing of tractors, he did sales and development. The paint was purchased from the usual suppliers although there were more than one which would account for slight shade differences Grey is notoriously hard to match, there are so many similar shades
The Grey used on the TE series tractors was different to the TO20/30 tractors which was BASF no is 76806 and DuPont 652..Supposedly there was only one Ferguson grey but there were shade differences. MF in the UK supply a grey paint that is supposed to be correct to the original spec, its called Vintage Grey. Ford also used a darker grey from 39-48 that some called Ferguson Grey. We did a chart of the paints for the Ferguson Furrows magazine in November 2010..John(UK)...fergusontractors@hotmail.com
