I just saw this pic on another ag site. Did the guy who restored this 6000 use two different colors between the hood and the front casting, or is this what gray gloss does on two different types of metal? (the front end is cast iron like on an 8000). I see a similar effect, to a lesser extent, between the cast iron rear wheel and the steel rim.

Are my eyes playing tricks on me? I can't imagine that the owner used two different colors intentionally.

I have run across this before with "factory Match" ford paint for the dealer. Bought the same paint with the same numbers on the can at the ford dealer to paint a front wheel on my 950, Same number but later color. On another note I just picked a Jub and PO told me it's the right color. It was too orange like the later X01 series. If you look close on the can factory match red from 1939/1962. I guess even ford didn't know the red didn't come out until the the 8n.

I could see myself forgetting what paint I got last time and getting something different and being sure that I got the same, LOL.

You're seeing fine - Looks like painter used two different shades of white.

Today's Featured Article - Tractor Traction - by Chris Pratt. Our first bout with traction problems came when cultivatin with our Massey-Harris Pony. Up till then, this tractor had been running a corn grinder and pulling a trailer. It had new unfilled rear tires and no wheel weights. The garden was already sprouting when we hooked up the mid-mount shovel cultivators to the Pony. The seed bed was soft enough that the rear end would spin and slowly work its way to the downhill side of the gardens slight incline. From this, we learned our lesson sinc ... [Read Article]
