    John Deere 420 Color

    I recently purchased a JD 420W, the hood is solid green but most pictures I find show the 420 as green and yellow.
    What determines the color the year, model or is it some other factor
    Thanks

    Welcome to GTT!

    Differing years and models called for different paint schemes. There isn't a pattern per se, but models were similarly painted as they introduced new series of tractors.

    Your 420 should look like this.

    Now that is a good looking 420, I hope mine will look that good some day. It is scheduled to be delivered tonight, don't know year yet but it is a slant steer. It has original paint which is an all green dash, and yellow rims
    So any model and any year could have an all green or yellow and green dash

    Generally speaking, it's not any year, any model, any paint. It's by "series." For example, the preceding tractor series was called the "number series." The previous version of your was the 40. The later version was the 430 and was part of the "30" series tractors.

    Here's a few examples.

    40, previous model to your 420.



    Then there's the 30 series, the 430 being your tractor's replacement.




    Now here's a larger tractor. A 60, part of the "number" series.



    A 620, part of the 20 series.



    Lastly a 630, part of the 30 series tractors.



    See how the series of tractors share the same paint schemes? It's the same today. It's all done by the series.

    I wasn't sure of the year or serial number break but the very first 420's were green with no yellow stripe on the hood and radiator shroud.

    All 420 dashes were Green. As best I know, only the 1958 year model had a slanted position steering wheel.

    Well I finally got my 420 home. It is a 1958 420W #130401 I think at some time long ago it was painted solid green.
    It has slant steering, five speed transmission, dual lift. It has good straight sheet metal but missing both fenders and left battery cover. Steering wheel seems to be from a car it has a nice oil leak around the left lift arm The tractor cranks and runs good, lift and PTO works. It has been changed to twelve volts. No brakes. It is going to take some time but I think with the help from you guys it will be a fun project

    Thanks Jerrel
