Very Nice!

Not bashing your restoration,but looks like the paint could have had a bit more blue added to it as the tractors in this time period had a blue/green color . Was this just a off the shelf color or did you try to get some custom made?
Also, your decal appears to be missing the words "Heavy duty" above the "versa-Matic"
