Keep an eye on E-bay for parts. Jacobsen built the Fords of similar years and models.
Jacobsen orange is available in spray can but I have paid $11.95 per can. I purchased it from Horst Distributing in Chilton, Wisconsin but any Ransomes Jacobsen parts dealer should have it. They (Horst) told me that the "white" is not white. I slowly peeled off one of the hood decals and it revealed the original paint color unblemished by the sun and grime. I eventually found that "ivory" is a very close if not exact match to the original color.
Chrome wheel covers were an option. You got pretty lucky there too!
