The problem is it's too late to keep the original paint. There is more rust than paint now. If you start clear coating what is left the metal will continue to rust under the paint and lift any clear coat you put on it. The best thing you could do for the tractor is to take it down to bare metal and repaint it to the color it once was when it was new. If you didn't want to do that I would thoroughly clean the tractor and frequently wax was is left.

Thanks. I have seen some original tractors with something over the original paint that looks wet. I have also heard of people mixing some concoction of diesel fuel and spray it but I don't think that's the way I would go. These tractors bring as much and more than one repainted in a lot of cases.

If you really want to leave the original paint, all I would do is rub it down with rubbing compound and put an automotive wax on it. At least it wouldn't look fake or trap rusting metal under a clear.
