Your brother has an early one, like the 5th one built........great find. The tractor should have the cast iron air cleaner cover with embossed lettering on it. Also they had a much different fender decal than the later 18-27's. I had an early one but not as early as yours, it was serial number 100325??? It had the original outline of the fender decal still in place. I checked with Charles City and they had the original decal on file so I had them make me a copy and I used it to make some die cut ones. The hood decal is a straight decal that is yellow and just says ROW CROP. There is no decal on the fuel tank. So if you ever need decals for it let me know. http://hartparrtractors.tripod.com/index.html
