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.

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.....
1982 Ford blue code 3M
1978 Ford white code 9F
Please check these, before painting, I could be wrong
