I always thought the Allis Chalmers orange is more "orange" than the Simplicity orange. When I had my Landlord repainted the paint codes were different, at least thats what the body shop man said when I asked about the differences. My son is redoing a Sovereign right now and he's using Allis Chalmers paint from our local Fleet Farm. The paint is made by Valspar. He likes the look of the Allis better. Changing the decals to a 918 Allis.

I thought by 75' it was the other way. Simplicity was more orange and the allis was more red, but I don't know. If you look at the ads it kinda hard to tell. I used allis orange on my 75' 7016 and it's close. It's a worker so close is good.

The AC lawn and garden equipment used "Corporate Orange" rather than the more common persian orange. Most AGCO dealers still stock it in quarts and spray cans. I have never used it so I can't vouch for its color match.

My son used the Allis Chalmers orange from Mills Fleet Farm,made by Valspar, and its a brighter orange than the "corporate orange". He likes the way it came out and I guess thats the most important thing. I'll have to post some pictures when I pay my dues and learn how to post photos.sm00
