The brown mules were made at Hopkins plant until New Holland "brass" came in --- I believe 1962 0r '61 and bought the "uni" line---then "mules" were made the next year by MM and had same brown color, but said New Holland --then next year New Holland took over and made them at their plant and were grey colored and had larger engine -- Detroit I believe ---would have to go back to my records and see as I worked on test stand and final inspection on "brown mules" for two years (1960 & 1961 I think or 59/60). I remember the later ones as Dyna brown and the earlier ones as the metallic as the Jet Star. I have a brown (Dyna) mule and picker sheller (250 corn head on model E sheller) and also did final inspections on those at Hopkins plant in the summers.

New Idea Bought the Uni Line (except the Uni-Balor which eventually landed with Hesston for their "in-line" baler design).
New-Idea built the Uni-up to about 1990, when "White-New Idea" went broke & bought by Agco, & merged with Allis.
