Blue was not a 1946 Ford tractor color. Gray was standard, about battleship color. Someone will object to that description but it is close.
There may have been some painted yellow for municiple use or even airport use. Some may have been painted military OD (olive drab). Blue sounds like a POs favorite color.
When the 48 8N came out, many dealers still had 9/2Ns on their lots. Many of those got painted red and gray like the 8Ns or "redbellies". Farmers wanted the "new" tractors.
