Check the manuals section of the website and see if you can find some original literature. When Ford split from Ferguson in 1948 and announced the 8N, a new tractor on which they had no intent of paying royalties, they stopped sourcing the implements from Ferguson and began painting them red. My guess is that an implement marked Ferguson-Dearborn was made just before the split. They had to put the Ferguson name on it to comply with the agreement, but Ford manufactured the implement in one of their own facilities (Dearborn). That would mean it was painted Ford dark gray, the 9N/2N color.
