What is the correct paint scheme. I understand it to be Silver Metalic tractor and red rims and centers. I have noticed red accents to grills, PTO covers and such. What was corrct from the company??? Any color pictures from sales lit. out there???

There is really no right or wrong when it comes to painting the Silver Kings. A lot of them left the factor and they were not even Silver. The small company just kind of used what they could get their hands on at the time. However most that are restoring them now do use silver. As far as the red accents just do whatever you wish. I"ve seen a lot of differnt ways. here is a picture of what I cam up with.

I see you painted your rims silver. The 38"rims I am working with were red and I painted them red this time. I scraped through several coats of paint and the last layer was red. Wondering if the factory had a plan or not.

I've seen old pictures of them and even old movies from the dealers and many of the rims were red. I just chose to do mine silver for the color contrast

Google "Silver King farm tractors" The site gives the history behind the Silver King. Very Interesting.

As Jason mentioned there are no exact right or wrong ways for painting model 42 Silver Kings. Thru my years of studying factory pictures and original tractors, there are certain things that you can kind of come up with a concensus on, or in other words, determine the way that the majority of them were painted. Something that I noticed when it comes to the rear rims from studying original pictures/brochures/advertisements, it seemed that if it is an earlier model 42 with the flat topped fenders the rear rims tended to be red, but the later ones with the clam shell fenders seemed to have silver rims. Something that seems to be pretty well the same across the board is the paint scheme of the grille bars. Every other one is red starting at the top with the center vertical bar being silver. Lights should be black, front rims red along with rear wheel cast centers. Decal placement and shade of silver/white/goldish are 2 things that varied a lot!!! I have posted 2 original pictures/newspaper articles from when they were new and one picture that shows a tractor that is still in original condition. Hope this helps!

I am in need of a carb for the same model. Tractor does not have one, as far as we know it is a MS, if anyone can tell me the model # I will be one step closer. Thanx, Fred
