Does painting a Ford 120 with New Holland Blue hurt the value, if I resell?

I wouldn't think so at all. It is a real close color as far as I'm concerned.

Josh, I don't think it would hurt a bit. There are a few who will differ, but if it isn't a 'restored' tractor, who cares. As long as it is a good paint job and keeps the rust a bay, go for it.

Thanks, do you recommend a clear coat on top of? Also, I want to paint the K301, do I need to use high temp engine enamel, or will the stock NH work?

Josh, I do not know what skill as a painter nor equipment you have. A clear coat would be beneficial. I'm hoping others who have more experience with painting will chime in. As far as the engine, that will depend on what color you want it to be. Most weren't painted with high temp when they left the factory.

As long as you dont paint it green.........lol

If you really want it right, take a piece to an auto paint store and get it matched with an auto paint

I am blessed/cursed with an insatiable desire to be self sufficient and that includes painting. I am a rookie but getting better. If the high temp is not needed, than I will go with the same all over...Thanks, JT

New Holland blue is noticeably different than Ford blue when compared side by side.But it is a close color.
Also,you shouldn't need high heat paint,although it may discolor around the exhaust.

I think Home Depot sells in their paint section the implement paint in spray can form. I think if I remember right they have Ford Blue. You could use this or paint a sample board and then bring that to automotive paint parts store. They could match it for you and you could run it through your own/rented paint equipment. Think about the resell and who that would be. Chances are if it was a tractor guy he might do it over anyway or if it were a homeowner, they might not care.
