What Color On A 1963 Ford 6000

I just acquired recently a 1963 Ford 6000. That is the year Ford went with the blue and lite grey ( almost white ) colors. I know that for sure because there is no sign of any red anyplace and also the serial number is a 1963.
I removed the hood and the piece between the hood and instrument panel and all the side panels so that I could pressure-wash the tractor. I think that I made the tractor two hundred pounds lighter by taking all that crud off. After pressure-washing the hood and removing some of the white or gray paint, there is the beige paint under that paint. On the under-side of the hood and the front screen frames on the back-side are beige also. The paint looks like new. I want to paint them four pieces before I put them back on but what color is correct. I think that the beige would look better, but I would like to have the correct color.
The nose-cone and both fenders have the beige color under the gray also. Any 6000 experts out here!

Ford9000puller, don't forget that the gray changed very significantly from XX0 to XX1. I would say that it has a little yellowish tannish tint to it depending on the lighting.

From what I have seen and studied I think the 62-64 tractors had a little different gray. Not as dark as the gray enamel on the 8n-x01 series and not as light on the 65 and up gray gloss. Anytime I paint a 62-64 2000 4000 or 6000 I mix the gray enamel and gray gloss paints from New Holland 50/50 and have been very pleased with the results. Here is our 63 6000 that was painted with the 50/50 mix.

I'm no 6000 expert, but I do have one I'm working on right now. '63 and up tractors used the same colors that Ford used for decades, the "old blue" and "gray gloss" combo, same as you'd find on a 5000 or 6600 or 7610. I said "old blue" because NH went to a blue with more purple in it around the year 2000.

Today's Featured Article - The Nuts and Bolts of Fasteners - Part 2 - by Curtis Von Fange. In our previous article we discussed capscrews, bolts, and nuts along with their relative hardness and thread sizes. In this segment we will finish up on our fasteners and then work with ways to keep them from loosening up in the field. Capscrews, bolts and nuts are not the only means of holding two parts together. When dealing with thinner metals like sheet tin, a long bolt and ... [Read Article]
