I have a Ford 641 I plan to shoot some paint on in the near future.
Its the typical red hood and chassis with the gray fenders and rims.

I would like to use a single stage paint without clear coat. Not a show tractor, just want it to look decent and clean and useable for jobs without sweating when it gets a scratch.

Its a tool not a tea cup!

Anyone have color chips or numbers to match up?

Thanks Ty

Is sounds like you're looking for alkyd enamel paint. You could add hardener for improved gloss, durability and cure time. I have experience with Tisco paints and find them to be very close to original colors.

Ford Tractors 1958-1961

Grey
CNH: M1J-957-SE5DS
Tisco: TP240
Van Sickle: 457
PPG: 32675
Centauri: 250202
Martin-Senour: M2J957

Red
Ford Paint Code: M1J-438
CNH: M1J-956-SE5DSLF
Tisco TP2822
Van Sickle: CML-5024 or 479

The Ace Hardware brand Rust Stop colors were good enough for me. They
have a Ford grey in the "implement" colors and I used safety red for the
red. It's been a durable coating.

I used the Majic brand at Tractor Supply about 3 years ago. I choose international red because it was a little darker than ford red. It has held up well. Used hardner, let it dry a few days, then hit it with clear. Still happy.

Thanks for all the response.
I appreciate everyone’s opinions.
And especially the paint codes.
