Have you seen this over at the VintageMachinery Knowledge Base (Wiki)?

Paint Colors - Walker-Turner
(http://wiki.vintagemachinery.org/PaintColorsWalkerTurner.ashx)

Although there is no one standard color that was used, which is typical of most manufacturers at the time… while close, there were slight variations even between the same machines built in the same year. In addition, the paint used will oxidize over the years, so what it looks like today is not what it looked like back then.

If you want an accurate match to YOUR machine, getting a color match with a hidden part somewhere on the machine is your best bet. Under bolted on castings and under machine badges are ideal locations to find as close to original as you will get. I have never seen a machine yet that didn’t have at least one spot suitable.

Cheers,
Brad
