Hello Mark 1,

i think, that it is a original red oxide primer on the front grill, and it was never varnished, because there ist no colore under this red and no color over this red. It is a Ford stamped grill, so i say that i dont know however ist wos never paintet for more than 70 years, but i cant take the responsibility to do it now.
That's why he's red!!! :P
.... and i like him so much!!!
regards

Looks to be a nice chunk of valuable change :D :D :D :D


Check the barn and the woods around the farm for the GPA !!!!!
