The original subject was "Re: 1935 Fordson N in orange?".

I have a 1938 orange Fordson N # 827260 .Allan Condie's book on the Ns said that the orange tractors were demondstraters . I wonder how many were painted this color? My RCAF Fordson N 1943 on rubber is painted light blue

A 1935 tractor should be Blue, It could have a water air cleaner, but may have an American 'Handy' oil bath unit. The Fordson oil bath air cleaner (and high compression head) came in Nov/Dec 1937 when the Colour changed to Orange. In late 1940 tractors became Green, The Germans used the River Thames as a corridor to bomb London and a load of bright orange tractors parked at Dagenham was a very visible target. Your 43 Fordson will be RCAF blue? as were the RAF Fordsons.

Hi. I've just done a bit of investigating for you and with a bit of multiplivision of the serial numbers have got to the situation of a pretty good guess. Firstly the Orange colour was properly called 'Harvest Gold'. production of this started in October 1937 ABOUT #No822800 and continued until ???????1941 somewhere around #No 880000 giving a total Orange production of VERY VERY approx 57000. Thats one hell of a lot of demonstrators. (Please appreciate that these are estimates based on known annual production figures and dates)
I have a very good 10ish page pull out from an old magazine that I will happily copy and email to anyone who is interested giving a brief and probably one sided view of this machine showing lots of variables. MTF
