Welcome to GTT. Good looking bunch of tractors you have there. Sorry I'm not familiar with the Simplicity but I'm sure others will be along to help.

I'm gonna guess the Case is a 69 or 70. I'm aiming for 69 considering the decal. Don't know much about the Landlord though. Nice collection and welcome to Gttalk!!!!

Nice herd. Welcome to GTT. I'm color blind so, I can't help with the paint match. That tractor looks pretty good. You may be better off to just clean it and wax it. Original paint is more desirable than repainted.  WWW.SimpleTractors.net may be able to help with the paint if you really want to paint it. Checkout our Manuals Section for the manuals that you need(3 free downloads per day). Good Luck, Rick

The case had the PK decals on the seat pan so I'm sure its a 69.Just put on new seat cushions and ordering decals from Maple Hunter.

She looks good. I've had numerous Case tractors and started dwindling them down to a couple. That way I can collect other colors. I kept my 69 444 and 83 226. The 69 is my favorite. Pic of my oldest giving it a workout.

For my landlord, I used Allis Orange due to the tractor's history of sorts. After a bunch of sanding, I found that the base color was allis orange and then later on in life it was repainted with a deep red. I believe the dealer had it painted this way. With all the research I did before painting mine, no one seems to know the correct color. I even went to a professional paint shop for finding paint codes. I've found a few forum posts showing that Rampart Red is the closest you'll get to the original LandLord Red.

Heres the receipt from the paint store.
