Does anyone have the persion orange paint code for the old AC"s. (1954) the Dupont code 29047 is not the correct one, it"s way to red. Painter is ready, please reply as soon as possible. Thanks, Basil

You're right, the DuPont 29047 is NOT correct for the early persian orange used by AC up to about 1959/1960 - too much red in it and is more appropriate for the later persian orange used after 1959/1960. The best match in DuPont that I have seen for that early "pumpkin shade" of orange is YS074. In PPG, the same early persian orange is best represented by code 60080.

Rod! I am so proud of the look of the old B. I havent been to your site for several yr's, and like always, things change! The last time I saw the old B ,It was wearing it's original paint, and looked it's age. Hey! I also stole a copy of your hand crank, and had a local blacksmith make me one, but it is a little shorter.Thanks a bunch. Ralph

Hi Ralph,

You're welcome and no you didn't "steal" it. I"m glad you got some use out of my crank drawing.

Today's Featured Article - Grain Threshing in the Early 40's - by Jerry D. Coleman. How many of you can sit there and say that you have plowed with a mule? Well I would say not many, but maybe a few. This story is about the day my Grandfather Brown (true name) decided along with my parents to purchase a new Ford tractor. It wasn't really new except to us. The year was about 1967 and my father found a good used Ford 601 tractor to use on the farm instead of "Bob", our old mule. Now my grandfather had had this mule since the mid 40's and he was getting some age on him. S ... [Read Article]
