445 would be Prairie Gold #2 with Cherry Red wheels

PG 3 was a darker, more "butterscotch" and began in 1959

Yellow began about 1963

This is INCORRECT! This list is in Error. There in NO paint called PG3. This is a great dispute amungst the MM Community. I have argued (upon deaf ears) with this color guide since it was published. Eventually it will be corrected, I hope.

1936 MM's were Yellow
1937 (ca.) to 1947 Prairie Gold #1.
1947 to ca. 1955 (letter Series) PG #2.
335, 445, 5-Star thru M5 & Gvi = Power Yellow M602 newer (except Red & Green Tractors) = Energy Yellow (also known as Industrial Yellow)

There are also several shaved of "Red" used thru the years, from "Cherry Red" with a nice Purple tint to an almost Massey-Ferguson Red in mid 1950's to White Corporate "Sumac Red" used in 1960's & newer.

I grew up with 1 owner 1951 ZAS & 1957 335, thy ARE DIFFERENT Shades of paint. the 335 is the more Orange Power Yellow. I have read several References to these paint changes from MM, in my MM Product history Research. Eventually when Publishes it will cover this as well as much more.

This color thing has been bugging me all day, so I've been doing more digging. Apparently, MM called it Power Yellow upon introduction of the POWER-Lined Series, but again started calling it Prairie Gold. Reference Jet Star & 4-Star Literature, Harvest Bronze & Prairie Gold are listed as colors, so this must be where Paint committie came up with PG#3. So apparently Power Yellow & Prairie gold (#3) can be called either interchangeably. Ref. Big Mo & MoTrac refer to "Highway Yellow". I will also add I have parts Manuals Reference in late 1960's to Prairie Gold, then it was "energy Yellow" so takes that fro what it's worth.
