All of my Black Knights are stamped "Golden Demo" in the description area but our 870 Golden demo is stamped "Golden Opportunity" in Very large letters that fill up the whole description area at the bottom. In the 1970's buyers guide it has a 1070 Golden Demo on the back page and at the bottom it calls it "Our Golden Opportunity" Our dealership had a very large amount of Black Knights brought in from all over the USA. My father tells me that in the time around 1972-1973 Case had black kights sitting all over, mostly down south and they were not selling. Case started discounting them and he brought in several semi loads of them from the MO area. The sad part is many of them were painted over. I know of one of our customers who had a golden 770 and a black 970....both of which were later dismantled.

Yes I too have seen them repainted its a shame. Back in the day some dealers must have thought the black paint job was not desired by many. I know a fellow that was shopping for a 1470 in the late 70's. He found one in Wis. and called for more info. The dealer told him how good the tractor was and then said there was one drawback, it had that black paint job. He was excited, went over and bought it. He used it until 2009 when he sold it to a party in ND. I found this out about 6 mo. after the fact, darn. Rod.
