Is that the original color?

According to the information that I've been able to get, these are the factory colors.

Ray, I can't wait to see this one finished. The paint job looks fantastic, and the turfs looks cool on this one...

This is going to be really neat, Ray! Like the addition of the reel mowers to it. Good luck figuring it out.

I came accross some photos of unrestored Bean Cutlers that look like they still have the factory paint on them.
It looks like they were painted all red ( including the wheels and seat ).
The Wisconsin engines were left the gray color that they came from the factory.

Most restorations have the wheels and seat painted a different color.
A lot of them have the wheels painted white and I've seen some with the wheels painted yellow.
I think the white makes a nice color contrast.

Here are the photos of the unrestored bean cutlers.
