As said above it depends on how exact you want to be and what you want to spend.  Wells Implement Co has a chart  http://www.wellsimplement.com/bseries.html  for colors of the older tractors that uses automotive paint, fairly expensive.  I recently used Rustoleum Caterpiller yellow sprayed with enamel hardener added.  The color is a little off, but it seems to be an affordable durable paint.

Im a rattle-can painter, I found that rustoleum 248947 chevy red-orange is a good gloss enamel for the 60s machines,while their 248941 Chevy orange is good for for the newer machines  70-80s.(4211 and 4212)I Just ordered a can of canvas white 778989 to try.... I had several cans in my stock, But family staying here got into my paints and tools.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
