Whoa, Whoa, Whoa Craig. Where did the '68 140h3 come from? I didn't know you had one of those. Even has the rear PTO shaft and lift rod. You been holding out on me buddy? What other secrets are you holding? LOL

 

I'd say the '67 110 and the '68 140 are both with the lighter shade green, even though some parts are darker than others, and the other two are the darker shade green. Again, for all of these tractors supposedly painted with the same green, there sure seems to be quite a variation in shades.

 

Is anybody else starting to agree with me on this theory yet, or do you all think I'm smoking rope and making a mountain out of an ant hill? I just want guys who are wanting to restore these old John Deere's to be aware of the fact, that there were indeed different shades used, so that they know which shade to use for the restoration.

Here is a shot of my completely original 73 110.

I do believe mine is much darker due to the fact it has been garaged its whole life, and not left outside and bleached out some.  So it retained its darker pigment.  Just a theory I happen to embrace.
