Persian Orange 1, there was a later Persian Orange 2 from some time after the D series started. PPG paint code is 60080 for number 1 if that helps.

I have seen lots of posts on the correct paint colour for persian orange 1 and PPG60080 does seem to come up the most.  Can anyone post a pic of their tractor that has painted this colour?
I'm about to order my paint and if it is as easy as that it would be nice.  I have two orginal samples of the colour that have been untouch that I could have scanned but one was protected from light and kept dry and clean and the other has been sealed under a grease layer and they are slightly different.  I have also heard about the florecent problem and don't want to scan the chip under one light then have it look like crap outside.  So I'd like to order the PPG60080 but would like to see it before I order. As people have different opions how things look it would be nice to see what This looks like.

I recently painted this blade with PPG60080. But it can vary on your monitor with your settings. I wouldn't hestiate to use this paint on your tractor.
