Battleships were different colors of gray depending on where built. Shortly before WWII the US Military standardized on a specific gray color and Henry purchased all the slightly different gray that was surplussed by the standardization. This was a lot of paint. This paint was used to paint the 9N's and likely some 2N's. So the color of the tractors had the variation that the battleships had prior to the standardization. Yes it was darker than the 8N gray. When I removed my seat spring, I found a nice patch of original color that had been protected through the years. I went to PPG and had them match the color.
