I'm going to be starting on my 72 sears custom 10xl , here in about a week as soon as I get my gt 18 back together . Is the white that is on them and the ss and St tractors a white or an off white from the factory like a cub cadet is?

I found an old ad for Sears paint with original garden tractor paint colors listed (see below). It has the original color information for the custom and the SS/ST series. The ad is so old the 16 oz. spray cans were only $2.32.

The Customs were Sun Gold. The SS/STs were Aztec Gold and Bamboo.

There are several on-line discussions about matching the Aztec Gold on the SS/ST series. CAT yellow is mentioned but is not quite green enough. Several people suggest taking a sample to a local paint dealer - if you don't need a rattle can.

Good luck,

JiminRI

I have an old Dupont paint book.  After looking in all the, never seen sunlight spots, on my 917.25510  SS12.  I have come up with these paint codes.....

 

 Paint

1982 Ford blue code 3M

1978 Ford white code 9F

 

Please check these, before painting, I could be wrong
