This has been mentioned before and I do not remember all the correct colors.

Simplicity dealers carry them as Deep Orange 1685611sm or Powder Orange 1685589sm.

One was Duplicolor had a match or close match. Some have mentioned for Ariens Duplicolor DE 1620.

Some have mentioned Allis Chalmers Orange.

Someone mentioned Rust-o-leum Chevy Orange.

Rust-o-leum has a specific Simplicity Orange but careful of the orange match as above. Tractor Supply carries Rust-o-leum Simplicity Orange, and some Home Depot may. Mine use to and no longer. but they also use to carry Rust-o-leum John Deere Green and John Deere Yellow. Now it's only available online. You may have to order a box of 6 or more. Maybe the HD Manager would bring them in for you.

For a customer's older 5hp Simpicity snowblower I bought Ace Hardware Orange which was a close match, not exact, as the closest Tractor Supply is 15 miles away and I don't go in that direction and it was only the skid shoes I was spraying.

1986 Ariens ST522, 5hp, 22"
1995 Murray Craftsman 10hp, 29" w. 12" impeller
A 1983 Real John Deere 10hp, 32" w. 12" impeller, 16" auger, 20" high front, cast iron gear box, chains
Noma 9hp, 27" w. 12" impeller
Noma 5hp, 24" w. 12" impeller, 20" high front
Gravely Convertible, 12hp Kohler cast iron, 26" width, 600 lbs of cast iron & steel, 2 speed impeller, 4 ground speeds
Dynamark 8hp, 26", 12" impeller, for sale
Several other 5hp, 8hp, several 2 cycle, all for sale

Simplicity has the specific color, about $25/can.

Thanks, I saw that. The chance of me paying Briggs $25 for spray paint is about 0.

Really looking for close match that isn't a rip off. Thanks for asking though

I don't blame you. I wouldn't pay it either.

If you're doing touchup and want it to match then i think you need to bite the bullet and get Simplicity paint or you can get something close. I completely repainted a late 70's Sno-away with paint from tractor supply and it looks good. It's not a perfect match but no one can tell unless you put an OEM paint next to it. I've been down this road on numerous projects so you need to either spend the $$ or learn to live with a slight mix-match.

You can go to an auto paint supply store and get a quart mixed. Then you put it in a fillable reusable spray can.
