Wheels And Grill Paint Colour, Massey Ferguson 135

Posted by The 135 Webmaster on January 28, 2010

People are often asking which colour the wheels and grill should be on the Massey Ferguson 135 tractor.

All the 100 series tractors used silver mist for the wheels and grill. Both the wheel centres and the rims were painted silver mist, but not the hub cap on the front axle or the axle end of the rear axle.

There does seem to be an increasing number of tractors been restored and having the wheel centres painted red. This colour scheme does look good and this colour scheme is on one of the original brochures I have seen for the 135. Red wheel centres does seem to be common on the tractors exported to Canada and Austrlia (to name two countries where a reasonably large number of these tractors went to).

    Paint all horizontal the low ridges a gloss black. A good quality rust preventive rattlr can paint will do. This is an old reply but others might want to know.
