What is the estimated year of this? Pink was a popular color on cars during early-to-mid fifties.:bigrofl:

The Shaw Du-All walk behind garden tractor that this is built from is a 1937.
The seat is the style that was used on crawlers in the 20's and 30's.
The Ford model-T steering is from the 20's.

Because of the parts that were used to build it as a tractor, I figure it was done in the 40's because the parts were cheep and readily available back then.
My wife helped me pick out the colors for the tractor and we chose colors that were used on tractors back in the 30's.

I have really enjoyed watching your build, fantastic work...Even pink it would be a great tractor and everybody would certainly remember it. I'm going to guess battleship grey with red spokes as your choice of color.

Any other guesses ?
Keep in mind that I'm using colors that were available on tractors in the 30's.

This is interesting ...
The tractor has three main colors and two trim colors.
Of the four ( 70Blazer, KennyP, mjodrey, cookiemonster ) that have made a guess so far, each has one color right that I have on the tractor.
