Pretty much the whole tractor was painted !! Later on with WD-45's the generator might have been black as were the headlites, but old WD's were all ORANGE including the steering wheel. You would be better served to worry about getting the CORRECT color of orange paint (Persian orange #1) and the correct color hood decals (blue up to about 1950 and black from then on). Bolt heads & nuts were painted orange when the rest of the tractor got painted.

I used stainless steel bolts and stainless washers so I don't mess paint up if I have to take hood off.

The correct paint color and the correct decals for a WD-45 !!!! It still makes me almost puke when someone spends the money for incorrect paint color and incorrect decals.

Which would have the blue letters with the big "A" and "S" and nothing that designates it as a "WD".

Just curious, when did Allis put the model designation on the side of the rad. ? Was it not until the WD45 came out or did the late WDs have it? I know some decal companies got creative and made decals for the sides of the unstyled WC. Thanks, Harry

Life's too short to worry about the color of a tractor.
I think it's really boring looking at the same color all the time.
I painted a few Mopar Ice Blue, and one was Tequila Sunrise Vitamin C.
That one was cool!!!
It change colors when the sunlight changed.

I know when the hood decals went to black letters with the "A" and the "S" the same size as the other letters, the model "WD" decal was placed on the side of the grille shell like the WD-45. I know the 53 models were like that and I think maybe back to 1951 ?? I'll bet Lyle Wacker (Osmund Nebraska ?) decals would know.

The WD that I grew up on was a '47 or '48?? It had black letters and a large A & S. It had WD on the side of the grill, and it did not have a snap coupler. Dad bought a cultivator, 2-16 mounted plow and a mounted corn picker. The corn picker came a few years later. It also had a push button switch and magneto.

1948 was the first year of the WD. In fact, there were 48 WC's. That tractor had been repainted. Big A and S with blue letters and no sign of a "WD" decal designation is correct.

100% in agreement with you Doc
If some wants to make a farce of a tractor go for it. but the sad thing I see is there is a lot of ppl who don't even know the proper AC colors so the ones painted properly are actually the minority/conversation pieces Rolling Eyes Laughing
