It is Ford light grey but looks like white. I used Tisco paints on JDs and the color is not OEM. On fords, the early 1000 series used a different color of blue than the later 3 cyls. The early models was kind of greenish and later more pure blue. Get the two tractors side by side and you can clearly tell the difference. Your Ford/NH dealer may stock the paint......or get it for you.
