Do you know the paint's name?

 

Could just be the angle but the text looks off on the hood decals.

The snap Hitch and patent decal are also in the wrong places.

 

 

Its tough with everyone and their Brother making decals these days to find the right ones, alot of people dont take the time to get them right while being reproduced and they just keep getting more and more off.

 

I know Click it and stick it has the closest ones to OEM, I've worked with him to point out some of the Bolens ones that were not right and had them fixed. I think the Versa Matic decals on his site are still off and need to get those done right.

I did find some info on the paint. I'll take a picture of it so you can see it.

Would you have any idea on the year of my Power HO model Deluxe 12BB-01? I attached pictures of it earlier in the thread.


With a square shrouded "8r6" I would say it's a late 52 or 53.

Or the engine has been changed, like mine. How do I know? I changed the one in mine because the earlier, correct engine in one of my Power Ho's was so tired it wouldn't run anymore.

If you would swap a early model 8 for a later 8 with the square shroud the grille would have to be knotched out a little for the corner to fit properly. I'd show a pic of what I'm talking about but I only have the earlier style. If you look at the pic husky posted the grille and bottom edge of the hood are close to being straight when the grille should start sloping down.

I guess it could have been changed who knows. My other Power HO had a rounded engine shroud.
