Plan on doing a full restoration? Just cleaning before painting isn't enough as the paint will chip away after a few years or less. Removing the parts and blasting, priming, and then painting will make it last another 60/80 years. On a budget? I use the TISCO paints, made in the USA by the Van Sickle Paint Co. I'd advise that every FORD labeled paint, regardless of brand, is too orangy for the 8N Vermillion. TISCO IHC RED TP-110 is the closest match and their grey is a close match too.

FORD TRACTOR TISCO PAINT SHADES:

9N/2N = TISCO FORD DARK GREY M-2888

8N = FORD VERMILLION (RED)M-2822 - TISCO IH TP110 CLOSEST MATCH

8N (AND UP) = FORD MEDIUM GREY M-13243 - TISCO TP-240

8N (AND UP) = *CNH IRON-GARD© ®™ M1J-957 SE4DS

*NOTE: CNH brand says used '39/62' but that isn't right. This is the FORD MEDIUM GREY and not used on the 39-47 Models. CNH no longer makes a Ford M2888 Dark Grey shade.

Color changes tend to be modernized by the paint suppliers so as to obsolete and not have to stock the older colors. If one were to change the pictured paint labels changing the Tisco Med Gray dates to 48-57, the M1J-957 to state 1958 up they would be be very be much as originals. We had both new Fords and Farmalls in the 50's, they were not the same reds, Farmall red was darker and slightly flatter. Who knows what todays paints resemble. I'm sure the Tisco IHC red is fine. I'm really liking the Coronado Rust Scat OSHA red I'm doing on my 960 now. Nice glossy red, not at all orangeish.
