Paint Schemes ?????

Wed Oct 10, 2012 10:35 am

OK Guys,
We have our 49 running great and all the starting problems worked out fine.. Now I am thinking of paint... Well, Since I had to replace the Hood/Gas Tank and tires, I can no longer be concerned with "Original". So, I am going to change a few things on it such as: 12 Volt Neg ground with Alt (Now I will be able to put my Ham Radio on it) Electronic Ignition, Canopy, and I have figured a system that will eliminate the Hand Lever for the plow Leveling and also have a plan for a double Hyd lift. Ok, So Maybe that will take a while.. thinking about the paint Scheme, I do NOT want to paint it like all the other 1000's as original. Who has seen, and will send me pics or descriptions of unusual paint jobs for the Cub. I may just keep it as is for a while but want some ideas Please.........I have seen a pic of one that is GREEN and CUBOTA is silver so the possibilities are endless I would think...
My Dad sold Fords for 32 years so I wanted a Ford but Got sentimentally involved in this cub. Actually the 2 sons of the Original owner are coming over this week to see it and Drive it after 21 years... Neat.
IDEAS??????????????????

I love the look of a red cub, with a white hood and grill. Black accents such as gas cap, breather cap, starter etc..

Or, Jan could do a custom painted hood? :big afro:

Use the old Ford (8n,NNa,ect) red and grey colors, using the old "red belly" scheme.

Jim T, we need a picture of "Buttercup". Not only pretty, but a Cubtug winner.

here's my '51 hi-crop two-tone...red as a nod to tradition, black because...well...I like black.
the color break accents the uniqueness of Loewy's design and the black makes all the red bits pop.
