I just bought a early to mid 90's Simplicity GTH-L.
Its just like my 7117.
The color isn't the old Allis Chalmers Orange.
Does any body know what the paint code could be?
I'm going to recondition the whole tractor.
Also maybe where I could find a brochore of what it looked like new?

You can search on the Simplicity forum looking for the word "orange" and maybe find some others.

If you are good at painting (I am not!) you can add hardener and other stuff to make a better job. Here is how mine turned out:
