I started to restore my G and got a can of spray from the dealer just to try. The paint is Allis Chalmers Orange made by Valspar.The shade looks a little to bright,more like Kabota Orange to me.Is this a newer AC Orange? Oh well the front wheel sure looks nice.

Hi Dave,

Your G originally used the early AC persian orange. There are two different "persian oranges" that were used by AC. The early one is commonly called "persian orange #1" and the later version is commonly referred to as "persian orange #2". I say commonly because I have not seen any distinction between the two on any actual paint label. The early one is a "pumpkin" shade of orange as opposed to the later one which has more red in it. The early one was used by AC up until about 1960, I think. For a visual comparison of the two (in PPG automotive paint) relative to my '42 B original paint, see the link.

As far as I know, most (if not all) of the paint you get from dealers will be the later version with the reddish tint to it. Some have used a rattle can spray paint from Krylon that is said to be close to the early orange but I have not tried it.

There has been a lot of discussion lately on this and other forums about the Krylon Farm and Implement enamel Aliis-Chalmers orange #1820 for A-C Persian orange. The consensus seems to be that it is a close match to Persian Orange #1, the original A-C orange. Most spray can paint I have seen is either PO#2 or Corporate Orange, both are too red for PO#1, which has been described to me as "pumpkin" orange. The remaining original paint on my '39 RC and '40 B verify this.
