Any good automotive paint works good on the fount, most paint (even high heat) won't survive on the vent. Someone probably has a decent vent you could buy cheap if you put a wanted ad in the classifieds....

Multiple "Hunter Green's" are out there and some are VERY close. I've used this one for the "E" series 220/228's and put a clear engine enamel top coat on: (NOTE: The cap below does NOT reflect the correct color).

For vents I've used this. Performance of this paint is inconsistent at best. This is typically only used on SMP Milspec vents of the 1980's. The porcelain vents simply get washed.
You might try the 'flame proof' primer first. Good to over 2000 deg. F. BE SURE TO FOLLOW CURING DIRECTIONS:

For a Coleman-type fount: A single-pack, relatively thin solvent-based acrylic spray paint that is sufficiently opaque and doesn't show through. Any color that"s desired.

But these days, you could get those 2-pack, ultra-glossy automotive paints. These are thicker and more durable but somehow lack the original look.
For the vents: nothing.

Go to this post by Warren on paint colors and how to paint.  The instructions are great.  

https://www.colemancollectorsforum.com/post/Paint-colors-and-How-to-Paint-3181805

Also - it is highly advisable to put on a top coat of solvent resistant paint - I learned this the hard way.....

Also here is my slightly updated paint color table. Lantern Inventory and Parts 190423.jpg

On a a scale of 1-10, its a 7. I normally  don't paint but I thought I'd give it a shot...

Well then, what's the thing that makes it look UGLY in your eyes? Sounds more interesting than the paint itself to me.
Is it some kind of badly-done paint job?

Mainly rust, all over. I've decided to leave it alone and make it functional...

In that case, some rust removing stuffs and polishing would make it look fine on its own without the paint.

7 out of 10 doesn't sound too bad.  My junk yard dog(ugliest) 200 is maybe a 3 at best, but being a junk yard dog, it'll stay that way and continue burning gasoline.
