What is the true paint color for a 1953 WD? I have seen some with orange front wheels and some with creme, Which is correct? The true color of the rear wheels is silver correct?
Thanks for your help.

Creme colored wheels were on some D Series- not first ones. WD fronts are all orange, rear are orange wheel dish, aluminum (silver) rims. Power adjust castings on rear wheels are also orange, not silver. Silver is on only rims and power adjust rails.

Orange fronts, Galvanized rears. Some after market wheels come painted a cream color and some later A-Cs came that way. Many restored tractors have wheels painted silver. I have thought about using "Argent Gray" for the rear wheels. This was a common color for 60s "sport" wheels on Fords, Chevys & Mopars; it's sort of between silver and light gray.

An original storm cover was used for the pattern, and this reproduction cover is indeed exactly as the original (of which we had previously only seen pictures of in miscellaneous old sale ...
