Simplicity Paint Colors, Did some research

Recommended Posts

This had been deleted when the servers were moved so I thought I post again. I did some research on the reproducing of the paints Simplicity used on their 60's model garden tractors by doing research here, through a PPG paint website, and through a PPG dealers computer. Here is what I have come up with. There may be different years and models this paint was used on on. Red/Orange: "Competition Orange" used on 1969 Chevy Corvette, & Camaro "Poppy Red" used on 1964-1969 Ford Mustang (Member Jim McDonald used this color for his nicely restored 725) [url]http://www.simpletractors.com/club2/topic.asp?ARCHIVE=true&TOPIC_ID=36756[/url] "Vermillion Red" used on 1964 Ford Mustang (Member firefoxz1 used this as a comparison to the old paint on his Broadmoor) [url]http://www.simpletractors.com/club2/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=82917[/url] All these colors are the same, and just use different names. The PPG Paint Code # is 60449. White: "Wimbledon White" used on 1964 Ford Mustang. Also called "Polar White" & "Artic White" depending if it was for a Lincoln or Mercury. The PPG paint code is # 8378. Happy Painting...

Thinking of having some rims powder coated. Does anyone know of the RAL paint code that is close to Simplicity 'White'. I will ask RAL what they have close to the PPG numbers, maybe they have a cross reference. Thanks

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time
