Ferguson TO 35

So I went to a local shop to get my starter worked on for my other tractor. While I was there, they had some classic tractor calendars on the counter. Naturally I had to flip through one and came across a Ferguson TO35 that had the underside painted green. This is the first time Ive seen this type of color scheme before. Was it common to paint the undersides both grey or green? Just curious. Cheers, Dakota Edit: Apologize that the picture is sideways.

Dakota,

Sorry not to have got back to you on this one but my internet router gave up the ghost and I had to await the arrival of a replacement.

The "green bellies" as they were known were the most common of the TO 35s, the other colour scheme being cream and grey.  In the UK our FE35s were grey tinwork with a gold (sort of) chassis and known as the "grey golds".  I personally think that the green bellies are the most tasteful.

The Detroit built tractors were all petrol engines whereas most of our 35s were diesels.  They were good tractors and considerably advanced the old grey Ferguson design.

Hope this helps a bit............
John

Hi John, Isn't technology great? Haha. Interesting, learned something new today. I will say I think the underside painted green makes it "pop" a little more.
