Ok folks- I've posted a lot of messages over the last 18 months, some to your chagrin, some to your amusement, some to help answer some legitimate questions. Now it's my turn to ask! Have this '37 WC- unstyled, with spoke wheels which will be black due to pictures I've seen,in spite of opinions being both black and Persian, but after stripping several layers of paint from the fan blades, I find black there as well. What's your take on what is legit- black or Persian Orange on the fan blades? My books don't show that area well enough to tell me what the blades should be. By the way, in regard to Persian Orange, Car Quest, an Upper Midwest auto parts chain,can mix PO for you, even though our local AC/AGCO dealers don't carry it. Takes two hours for CQ, which is close to home, while ordering from the local dealer takes a couple weeks. Some dealers carry Corporate Orange, but that's not Persian, which is appropriate for AC up to 1960.

Just looked at an original "Unstyled" WC last weekend about an hour from my house sitting along side a Diner no less! It's not in bad shape, missing some parts, gas cap has been off for who knows how long, but it needs a resto soon or it'll be goin' to the big Orange promiseland in the sky... Anyway, the fan blades were orange like the rest of the engine if that'll help ya. If I remember right though, the spoke wheels front and back were also orange. (?) You can tell by looking at it that it's obviously been untouched the way the paint is chipping off due to the rust under it. Tires are OEM, flat, n' cracked. I to have seen pictures of the WC's with black wheels. Just my imput..... ..A definite "head scratcher"... Steve

Thanks for the responses-looks like it could go either way. Dad was a farmer-dealer in the late 30s, so my earliest recollection was of our family's first WC- styled, serial #77717 (still looking for it in area yards), but my recollection of unstyled tractors is more recent, and usually from books, since restored ones have often been modified. Thanks for the input!
