Wow...talk about deja vu. I just finished painting my 1973 Ariens 8 hp. The best place to get either spray or liquid paint is your local body shop supply company. Take a sample of the paint with you, In my case, I took the pan that covers the transmission gears. They can match it up pretty exact.

Ariens Orange Paint (Good Match)

I recently purchased an old Ariens Sno-Thro snowblower.

It needed repainting but I didn't know where to find the paint and didn't want to pay the high price for Custom Paint.

I read on-line that Chevy Orange Engine Paint was a good match so I went on a mission.

The final result after buying 4 cans of spray paint is that
DupliColor Engine Enamel #DE1620 Chevrolet Orange
is a good match. $4.99 at most Auto Parts stores.

They also sell a Chevy orange #1607. That is too dark.
make sure it is #DE1620 right above the bar code.
