That campaign actually started back in the red gray days. It was due to much research that proved that tractors painted in the current colors sold quicker and at a higher price than the original colored units. Tractors changing to blue was due to another huge campaign that had to do with a bad reputation of some Ford engines like the 292. Ford Motor mandated that all Ford engines from then on be painted the "Blue stands for Quality" which included tractors. The tractor division hated it but had no choice.
