Your battery cable looks awfully thin. Is that an auto parts store buy? Looks like a 12v cable, and you're going to want to replace that with a much thicker 6v. I suggest a 00-gauge, but I suppose a 0-gauge would work.

This could be a bracket that holds the heater hose off the cylinder head. Some of which I would like to have.

Definitely a repaint. The car was originally grey, or light olive green, with a white/ivory double pinstripe.

Funny story to add to all this A/C being installed in cars.

We had a neighbor that was a farmer and he would never buy a car with a/c in it. He would always say what's the use, it's only really hot two months out of the year and it's a waste of money.
Now his son owns the farm and has tractors with cabs and a/c. We were talking about his dad and he said that his dad is probably turning over in his grave.

How time changes.

That said, the difference in cost of the tractor today with or without a/c is probably negligible.

I see what you're saying in regard to the top. You could be right.

The problem with modern paints is that the metal flakes are WAY WAY too large for what is correct. Knowledgeable restorers are sifting their paints. The correct flakes should be a mere fine powder, and should be BARELY discernible in the paint when looking at it.

Reproduction is probably your only choice.

Here's another car with the wheel-well-opening-only skirts, without the added trim on the face.

There were two different skirts used. One was teardrop shaped, and, yes, the rear trim would have been shorter if those skirts were used. The second style was as shown above, and the fender trim would have not been different. The trim on the skirts is something you see done in more recent times. I do not believe the factory offered that.
