IH Paint Codes

Recommended Posts

So, in getting my ducks in a row to restore my #8, I'm trying to dig up all the "As Correct As Possible Given 50 years of Paint Technology" Paint Codes..Realized that theres a PLETHORA of codes & info, so I was thinking as a way of "giving back" I would like to compile them all into a nice table on a dedicated web page for everyone. I could also make a nice PDF Handout to print if thats something that interests people.

That being said, here's what I got thus far..

IH Reds:

#50 Red (1937-Mid 1949): PPG 70019, DuPont 7410

IH 1102B Red (1949-1958):

IH 201 Red (1958-Early 1961):

2150 Red (Late 1961-Early 1980): PPG 71310

Gloss Red (Late 1980-Current): PPG 78009

IH Whites:

901 White (??-1970): PPG 8665, MS 53A-3965

902 White: PPG 90592

935 White (1970) : PPG 91607

Harvester Cream: MS 99N113

602 Blue: PPG 10067, DuPont: # 24160, MS 3736

Gold Demo Gold, Various Found:

-1967 Caddy Baroque Gold: PPG 22814

-1973 Ford Gold Glamour: PPG MTK 2415 A (Paint is somewhat Translucent, shoot on top of White Base)

-1970 Chrysler Aztec Gold (Dirtboyz07)

-1968 Rolls Royce Gold

Any other codes or codes for other brands of paint anybody has would be much appreicated. I know with something like Paint codes between fuzzy info and years of paint technology altering colors it would be hard to get this perect, but I'd like to basically make this a "Generally Accepted" type of list.

My list stops with 2150 and IH 901, as I don't have any newer tractors. Mine and apparantly yours are straight from the Wisconsin Historical Society, and thus are correct. The DuPont code for 2150 is 96766. I have not seen any codes for 1102B and 201.

Thanks Ken! Never seen that site.

But it also illustrates what I'm trying to accomplish, by sorting thru all the "conflicting info"...and maybe someone can help here.

IH Blue...On that PaintRef site, the PPG Code of 10067 I listed above comes up as IH "Light Blue" Used from '39 to 1942. DuPont code of 93-6989 Paint Ref IH Light Blue

If I search the DuPont code i listed above of 24160, that comes up as "Corporate Ford Blue" DuPont 24160

I've seen both listed on the interwebs as being "correct" for Harvester Blue, But what is the "Light Blue" anyways? Paint comittee decision #37 says Harvester Blue, and #136 Clearly says "No 602 Harvester Blue"...

Someone had a question about paint and paint codes again today, and I am posting so they can get this also.

The correct color for the GOLD DEMO paint is 4357 gold metallic from the IH truck division. I've noticed several scouts and trucks of this color and it's the correct color. Ken Updike and I have talked about this several times. IH would have used what was on hand at the time than change to some special paint. Eason
