Default 1920 Imperial Tractor Restoration

Here is the process we have made on putting together an Imperial Tractor made by Robert Bell. Wondering what the colours are to be. And needing a parking brake lever and a seat.

I've seen a picture of one in a book but I'm not sure if the colours are 100% correct or not. I'm not confident in my scanning abilities as of yet, sorry! I can try though!

The chanel frame, wheels and various cast parts are like an "International Red" and the sheet-metal appears to be like a "John Deere Green", with yellow lettering on the hood and rad.

Surley there is something on the web somewhere!

Have you looked at the Imperial from western Ontario that was or still is owned by the family that bought it new?
