Are you saying its not correct paint and decals. If it was then most of the WD45s were painted the wrong color at the Gathering of The Orange 2015.

Not sure who you are referring to by your question. I see a couple different shades of orange in the pictures. The sun and aging makes some difference. Different brands of paint are NOT the correct color, even tho they may claim to be P.O.#1. I use PPG and feel it is about as good as it gets for correctness. I can't tell the decal colors, but the big A and S are to be blue. The small A and S are always black. The year of change from blue to black was sometime in 1950 or 51 I think. A "WD" never had a WD decal if decals were blue. That's how it was when they were built. It's a free country (yet) and anyone can paint and decal their tractor however they want. I just figure spend the same $$$$$ and get the correct paint/decals. Resale value down the road just might be better.

Yes is is s free country but those that mock restoring tractors properly make no sense.
Rod(NH) was kind enough to post the difference in another thread .

I am a little late here. Dad bought a new WD in 51 and I was seven years old. There was never the WD letters on the side of the rad.

Looks pretty legit to me. Small "A" and "S" that were black and then the "WD" designation. I don't think one will ever find a serial number break in the parts book as to when they went from old blue decals to these the newer ones.

I grew up with these tractors and remember when the D-series came out and seeing the new tractors at the dealership being the new Redish Orange. We realized what #1 Persian was even on faded tractors.
A few years ago at the "Gathering of the Orange" at Mount Pleasant, Ia one of the most serious Allis-Chalmers exibitors told me the back rims were to be painted a special Grey. I knew they were Galvanized since our original rims still had signs of being Galvanized. He was pretty sure about the grey and showed me a nice picture to prove his point which was grey??? Moved on and did not argue but experience has some advantages.cleddy

I painted my WD45 Corporate orange. It was the only color the AC
dealer carried. Fine with me I like the brighter color much
better than Persian orange. If someone doesn't like it they can
shove it up their pooper.

Of course there may be "exceptions"....apparently somewhere along the line, some WDs had the same size A and S in their lettering as did the WD-45.
I'm guessing that later WDs may have had that style lettering....maybe?
Well, at least the 100,000th one off the line had that style lettering according to a picture on page 78 of "the Bible" ....Norm Swinford's book.
