It is believed that this red lettered decal was used from the beginning of production at serial number 8401 thru #9626 and then the decal changed to black letters and went through #11499. Also a very few of the first tractors built may have had a decal that read "Hart-Parr Oil Tractor" New Hart-Parr decal

If anyone is interested in these decals please email me at: Hart-Parr Tractors. They are made out of durable vinyl and are die-cut which means there is nothing between the letters, so when they are applied they look as if they were painted on.

New Hart-Parr gray paint is NAPA #99L-1578 acrylic enamel
Hart-Parr green paint I use is PPG MAEB-QT 45177 prime Deep Green

         I realize there are several paint numbers floating around, but this seems
         be about as close as any of them. As long as they are not painted meadow green.

Oliver Hart-Parr green paint is NAPA #99L-11513 acrylic enamel.
Red paint for the wheels, well that is a good question, but I just use IH red,
it doesn't matter to me as I am color blind.


As for the lettering on the front of the radiator, in all my research, it appears
that the lettering was painted white on all models except for the Hart-Parr 70.
On some photos you can see that they are a dark color as if they would of been
red, but I'm sure that is not the case. I only put faith in original black and
white photos and they all show white letters.
