Most F40's were painted red and flint gray after the MF(1958) came out.Dealers couldn't sell them in Bamboo and flint gray. MH50 has bronze chassis- MF50 has flint gray. More than likely someone just painted it red. Does the side panels on yours have two bolts at dash or three. F40 had two and 50's had three.

My 56 TO 35 has a red “primer” (at least thats what im calling it) under the paint on the castings. In any sense, the F40 should be a flint metallic gray belly/engine. Even if it was swapped sheet metal onto a MH 50, it would be the “gold” belly and red sheet metal combo depending on the vintage of the 50. Later 50’s were flint metallic gray bellies.

That red primer is more likely "Glyptal" which is a sealant for the cast iron to keep the oil from soaking through the cast iron used back in the day.

Thinking about that again, gee I am slow.... Glyptal was applied on the inside of the cast iron housing. NOT the outside.
