Collection, Preservation and Display of Old Lawn Mowers

Colour and parts

I have a couple of Nash Boudicea  lawnmowers. One has been totally restored and has a dubious green colour with red coloured rubber rimmed wheels. ( photo included) I also have one which seems to be in a totally original very good unrestored state. It however runs better than the restored one and starts first or second pull. I would if possible like to find out if the light metallic blue/ green colour is the original as opposed to darker green. Also are the yellow handle grips original. The restored one has Suffolk Punch style. The wheels on the unrestored one are grey rubber on cream coloured rims - are these original ? Any help would be fantastic. Enjoy the photos.

Hi,

Regarding the paint: I would take the mower to a car paint specialist who can analyse the color and mix the paint for you from a piece of original paint and make a couple of cans of spraypaint for you.
It is pretty easy.

The original colour would appear to be the metallic blue, this one I have has not been painted having original transfer, also hand grips are the same as many others I have seen. Would be interesting to gather some serial numbers?

Many thanks for that info. Do you happen to know whether the light blue/ green on the seemingly unrestored machine is correct ? Thanks
