Number 50, not that anyone will be able to do anything with that number. Use 2150.

That's the IH number. Still available at Case/IH dealers. Other paint brands mix up what they call 2150, but there can be variations in the color.

Tractor supply sells it by the gallon or by rattle can.

Whatever you choose, I would stay away from the Ace Hardware, Tractor Supply, etc. paint. Don't buy anything "cheaper" than 2150 from the caseIH dealer. It's not fancy but it's good paint. You can throw in some hardener (if you have the right safety equipment) and if you're good with a gun you can end up with a finish as good as you could get with automotive paint. If you want automotive paint, a search should give you codes for Nason (Dupont), PPG, etc. (We used Nason 96766 on my "pretty" Super A).

I'm sure the caseIH paint will be more expensive than Tractor Supply, but it'll be worth it.
