Found this tractor for sale, I have the gear version, but I'm not sure about the color, were the hydros painted different, or did someone paint this thing m

I'd take a wild guess and say it's been repainted!

I'd say it was a respray. See the overspray on the lever on the center tunnel. Sorry can't help with the correct color though.

It's a repaint. Blue for the main body. White fenders and hood I believe

So they used different colors for hydro tractors? My gear version is yellowish orange and has not been painted.

I don't think I'm going after this one, non-running and hydro tend to scare me off, I don't buy hydros generally unless I can test them first.

Gilson/Wards tractors changed colors alot but they Never painted any model that disgusting Green color that I can remember.

 

Ford Blue is just a Little darker than the original blue but looks really good. You can use Valspar 4431-12 Ford Blue Tractor and Implement Paint and Valspar 4432-14 Gloss White Tractor and Implement Paint. It's pretty cheap and holds up good.

Yikes.. that tractor needs some purple paint.  Original colours are a bit lame for me.  I like tractor to stand out in a good way :D
