Hart Parr 18-36 Brown Paint?

Postby gmc406 » Sun Sep 13, 2015 9:43 pm

I'm in the process of restoring a 1929 18-36 SIN # 86078, and ran across a couple 18-36's on the web that were restored to brown paint instead of green. This has me confused as to the real colour of mine. I see no green on it other than the rad, but who knows if the rad had been changed at some point in its 80+ year life. Thoughts?

Here's a youtube vid of a brown 18-36:

This tractor looks like several others that I have seen. I don't think it has been painted. It looke like the rust has been covered over with diesel fuel or something similar to stop the rust from deteriorating, and to preserve the tractor. I have not seen a tractor of this vintage painted anything other than dark green.
