great looking tractors!!!!!

i have a 1957, like yours its painted red now, but someday i may paint it back the original colors: beige and gray

wonder if your 1956 could have been one of the early rare one's that was painted cream and green.

I do not know what serial # were painted that color.

the owners manual that came with our 1957 model shows a tractor on the front cover that is painted cream and green, the manual is also dated 1956.
I never understood why they changed the colors so often back in the day.

i have three of the manuals you have pictured. two dated 1955 and one 56. the photos all look the same. no color variation. the 55 manuals have no part numbering under the word's racine, wisconsin.
i have a true color ad for the "ferguson 35" that is dated 1954 and clearly shows the hood is gray.
neat looking ad by the way.

After some emailing with Paul in AZ and doing a lot of looking I have found out the early 1956 TO 35s were probably painted Grey and Green same as the 1955s. The Beige and Grey did not come onto the scene until sometime in May of 1956, the same time that the F 40 was put into regular production. It was at this same time that the three-letter prefix began & the SN plate changed background color from dark green to black. Unlike the automotive companies the tractor companies stayed pretty true to the calendar. The first tractor built the first work day of the new year was classified as that year. Car companies started in September (as I remember from years ago) introducing the next years models. I have not found any information as to what SN would have been the first number for the Beige and Grey colors to have been painted. I'll keep looking.

Richard, I got the information from one of these old Ferguson data sheets. That a few units were painted beige and green.

note: it says there some few 1956 units painted beige and green, who knows.
would be something to fine one of those.

Maxwell as I remember I saw a Grey and Green 56 at the Ferguson Expo in 2010 at Monroe, Mi. and there is always the possibility I saw a Beige & Green 56 without giving it much thought at the time. The more I am digging into these great tractors the more I am enjoying it. I found out I cannot tell anyone that a certain paint scheme could not have happened as they will prove me wrong. LOL
