Rod I too have a fond spot for the 1470 tractor, we as dealer's were very impressed with the "70" series lineup when we got our first load in late 1969 870,970 and a 1070 next came a 1470 ( and they were hard to get) the first four or five 1470's we got in were sold when we ordered them and it was 1971 before I got to drive one myself on a demo I was in heaven!! I had always wanted one to farm with and finally in 2001 I was able to buy this one at a auction in Stanford MT, it was to my suprise a "relabeled" 1470 Demonstrator, this is one that was instock at a dealer before the program came out and partly due to the long wait to get a 1470 in let alone a GD or BK model to spur on sales Case allowed a few of the 1470's to be "tagged" as Demo units and recieved the same program as a GD or BK model, for those of you who do not know what that entailed a dealer that had a Golden Demo or Black Knight they were to set up(the most desired model) properly with tires,weights and optinions best suited for their area put break-in hours on it themselves if possible then continue to demo it until it had a minium of 200hrs before they were to sell it at a discounted price (not all followed the 200 hr rule) any way this 1470 I have is one of the even more rare models than even the GD or BK units, I hauled it home myself the aprox 500 miles one way home the next weekend and as soon as I got her home she was serviced and put to work, I perfer to run it over the 2670 I also have and it does pull all of the implements I have very well and uses at least a third less fuel than my 2670 doing the same job, the 29' WC chisel plow behind it was sold new with the first 1470 we sold, my father and I assembled it together in the cold spring of 1970 in front of the shop, sorry for the long winded story, one more thing to note is I have two 1470 this one with 23.1x26 tires and one with 18.4x34 dualls both are grat tractors in my opinion to operate as they give you a real "feel" of your work they will be on my farm until I am gone cnt Tom
