How many models were yellow?

I am looking at what is supposedly a TO-35 which is equipped with a Davis loader (101 I think, single dump cylinder) which looks from the pictures I've seen to be in pretty good shape. The whole thing, tractor and all is industrial yellow just like my 202. I'm wondering if it could be a turf special or just a 35 that someone painted to match the loader.
I've sent my father in law to go have a look at it and get me a serial number as it is near where he lives and almost a 3 hour drive for me. I should have more info this evening.

I thought at first it might be a turf special but it is not. I went and looked at it this evening and I committed to buying it. I should have it home in a week or two and I'll do some more probing. It looks like it might have been used by our Ministry of Transportation. Their colors were yellow and black. It is all yellow with black fenders. I didn't see any other color poking through but who knows. I may leave it yellow or if I decide to dress it up I will do it the proper color for that year.

So the serial number tells me it's a 1959 TO35 Deluxe (2 stage clutch), standard/utility chassis with gas engine.
My father in law says it looks to be in very good shape, good tires, all operational (3pt and loader hydraulics), no major leaks and pretty clean. The only thing is that it apparently doesn't run too well but the owner doesn't seem to know a whole lot about it. He tells me he tinkered with the distributor and it ran much better for a short amount of time. I don't think it's going to need much.
I will remove the loader and use it on my 202 as the one I have is pretty beat up. Then I will use it just for 3pt work. Better that way as it does not have power steering.
I'm going to take the drive and look at it tomorrow evening. Not going to reveal the price or location just in case.......... :lol:
