AC Spray Paint question

Looking for a readily available rattle can close enough to Persian Orange for front rims on an early W Speed Patrol. The whole tractor needs paint but needs work first. Had to buy new front rims and i need to get some paint on them as they are bare metal now.

Also is color same as 41 WF and 47 WC? WF currently has silver rims - rears appear to be galvanized.

According to Terry Deans AC book, the entire WF would have been PO#1 from the factory. I think some of the early WC's had black front and rear rims.

I found that Krylon 1820 is a very close match to the original.

Last I knew, AGCO was making PO#1 in a fizz can. Sandy Lake should be able to set you up. Or find a local AGCO dealer.

PO 1 until 1960. Then PO 2. Forgot the year of Corporate Orange, but it was later.

OK - Assuming PO#1, what is closest I can get in a spray can over the counter. Best Ed

Most farm and home stores have it in rattle can of the correct color or at least as close as any rattle can can be. I know TSC has it in rattle cans of PO-1

They uses 2 different colors of orange and if I remember right they did not change it till in the late 50s early 60 so yes the WF and WC would be the same

OK - heres another question - in the picture that you posted, the rims are silver - both front and rear. I dug some other photos out of a couple of books that seem to indicate most of the rims which were detachable from the wheel hubs were silver - but granted most of the color pictures you see are later vintage and I know some are repaints. And I found some old black & white photos where rims were darker (black?) up to about 1940 and at least 1 photo ad for a W Speed Patrol where rims appear to be lighter (silver?) But the rims on mine were definitely orange at one time (now rust and weathered brownish orange) - so I guess I can go Silver or Black or Orange unless anyone can help me out - by the way its a 1941 model.

Suggestions?

The repair parts manual I have does not have any color pictures or tell me the true colors. The picture of mine is a 1947 and I painted the rims the color they appeared to be as was on it

Today's Featured Article - Major Problems - by Anthony West. Following the aquisition of the two Fordsons to my collection I found that I was struggling to move them about. I had considered the possibility of driving the "F" to and from shows but anything other than local rallies was totaly impractical due to its sedate pace. I had also considered buying a landrover and trailer, but the price of a ... [Read Article]
