When years did Case switch implement wheel colors? It seems that Case used, wheel green, Case Green, Flambeau Red, Dessert Sunset, and Power White was last. It seems that the earlier colors overlap, and it may depend upon the specific equipment, or where it was built. Has anybody deciphered this?

Thanks for the input guys. We also have an E-3 elevator, but the wheels are Wheel green, and it has a Case green frame. Perhaps it is earlier than yours Pat. We also have a T-series plow and a S disc with Wheel Green wheels, and Case Green frames. we sold a 210 chopper that had Dessert Sunset wheels; It must have been late, because others seem to have Case Green wheels. Don, I have also seen threshers with Case Green wheels, and I recently saw a picture of one with Flambeau wheels, like my picker. Of course the thresher wheels could have been painted; my picker is all original. Someone once told me that Case had more than one plant building the same implements, and they would paint the same equipment different colors. So if you knew the colors you could tell where it was built. Have you ever heard of this?

We have an E series hay/grain elevator with Desert Sunset rims, mid 1950s vintage. Also a J2 blower with spoked wheels from early 1950s that are Case green. Had a Case 210 chopper also with spoked wheels that I believe were also Case green. Had an S-series 8 foot disk with Case green rims also. Used to have an MTA 3 bottom plow for the 400 that had a Desert Sunset guide wheel rim, what was left of the paint on the furrow wheel was also Desert Sunset. L series grain drill had Case green rims.
I know this is absolutely no help! Dad bought all this equipment during the 50s so seems as though it was whatever the mood was in Racine then.

No takers on this I see, obviously I can figure out Power White, and Desert Sunset Roughly, I actually asked because I have two pickers that have different color wheels, and I figure they should be fairly close in age. One is a PR with Flambeau Red wheels, and the other is an IS with Case Green wheels. Any clue as to which is older/newer, and when Case may have switched colors? I think Wheel Green was primarily used on tillage equipment.

I can"t be of much help, but we had a Case thresher with rubber tires and the rims were Case implement green. It was a 1952 model. Don
