Where the 961 ever blue and grey? I have one that is grey and red, but under the red paint is blue. I am assuming it is originally red. New tractor to me and just wanting to make sure before I do any repainting on it.

I can't make out the fuel lever, but yes, the seat and spring would have stayed black just as they came from the manufacturer, and the starter button should be red, 'cause they never would have taken the time to mask it.

I have no dog in the tractor paint issue,
but if the numbers match and is was red and gray from the factory,

then by all accounts I would paint it back red and gray,
I think this paint scheme was one of the best looking tractors of the day,

however, it did take a while to paint as there are a number of different parts to paint and then re assemble.

even as nice as this one looks, notice the fuel lever, they painted it red, I believe it was chrome from the factory, not red!!!!!! also I think the seat was black!!!!! I would have to deduct points on that,

Blue and grey didn't start until '62, with the 2/4/6000's. Your 961 would have been red and grey from the factory, but may have gotten a dealer repaint when Ford was offering that to make them look more like the newer models.
