You are right, the 935 you get from caseIH is way to yellowish to me. I'm not so sure it was originally that creamy; all the newish 84 and 86 tractors I remember growing up had side panels that were more of a pure white. Anyhow, you need 901 white. I came up with this via google:

Napa Crossfire/martin Senour acrylic enamel 53A-3965

I'm sure some more digging would give you a code in PPG, Nason, or whatever.

The white that IH used was not a stark white, but more of a cream color.

I don't think IH ever used 902 white on tractors. It was used on implements from what I have been able to learn. In '57 they would have used 901.
