Why is the sky blue? I guess Simplicity wanted to make the "new" 7100 series appear different than the "old" 7100 series. A completely black chassis is probably more efficient (profitable) too. Just add the orange sheet metal and they're ready to sell. Maybe that's why they then went to the same paint across brands. Just build one tractor, slap on whatever decals are needed, and that's that.

In the AC 700 series, it was the older ones that used the black front axle and running boards, while the newer ones were all orange. Guess they just wanted a change.
