I would say that I don't have a clue why it would be orange. The last year of the water bath air cleaners was 1936 but I'm sure that they were put on early 1937 Fordsons to use them up. A note about the orange color. At the beginning of WW2 the Germans were attacking England from the air. Those orange Fordsons really stood out in the field. So many were repainted a dark color and production color went to green.

About the colour of your tractor there could be a thousand reasons. So I'm not a lot of help
The bit about them being visible targets is almost true. In fact it was because they were produced at Dagenham, a town on the river Thames estuary and only a few miles from central London. As you will readily see a whole football field sized factory park of bright orange tractors was a beautiful target but also a way marker for the aircraft that were bombing London. Least thats the way I understand it. Incidently I was around then and I honestly can't recall seeing an orange Fordson working in a field. Perhaps all the local guys just up and painted them. Take care MTF
