There is no paint codes, use a part of the tractor with good paint on and take it to a car parts store that makes paint and they should about make a copy it.

I took my parts to NAPA and they mixed the colors, ready to pick up the next day. Lots of good help from them also!!

Yes Napa has a good scanner but yo need a piece minimum of 6X4 inch with clean paint to get a good match. I was there yesterday and part was to small to scan.

Speedyg was right Napa has a exact paint match in a chip for my 1225, it's called Persian ivory.
It cross references with a GM paint that was used in 1967 on there Cadillac's. It not cheap but you won't find a closer match IMO.The paint sample was from under the sticker.

I think there should be a sticky for paint and colors that we come across. It seems a lot of us would benefit from this. Not trying to hijack the tread but it makes sense to me.

I see you're using Nason single stage urethane paint.That is pretty good paint,I use it quite often.
What is the paint code for that color? It would be on the can.

No,that wouldn't be the paint code. I am very interested in the paint code,do you think you could get it for me at NAPA?They should have put it on the can.

Ok I've done some searching, and G.M.'s paint code for the 1967 Cadillac Persion Ivory appears to be 40.


EDIT:

No, wait,I just dug out my old R-M color chip book that goes back to 1959 ,and they don't show a Persion Ivory.They do show a Kashmir Ivory # 40,but it looks too yellow.

There is one just called white,code 12 that looks right.Of course color chips are not necessarily accurate.

My 1220 that I am in the process of restoring doesn't have any part big enough to get a good scan for the original brown on the frame. I did remove the PTO decal and it appears to be a metallic color. Were these painted with metallic paint? Any good paints people have found to use for the brown frames? I would prefer to stick with the automotive paints as that is what I'm familiar with spraying.
