Yes, the off-white color is correct, although it may have a little too much yellow in it in the case of that model. That color was used for many years by Western, on other aircraft including the DC-6B and L-188. N1501W was delivered new from Boeing to Western in that paint scheme on June 22, 1968. (Western began to repaint its fleet in the red-on-white "Winnebago" colors in late 1970.)
Now, if only someone will give us a 737-247 in the classic Indian Head livery.
