The serial has to be in the range Greg gave. The first 3 months of 1950. In other words the serial plus the white paint. Unfortunately the one who gets my originally white C will have no proof but the serial, because when I repaint I remove all the paint. If I sell it while alive I have pictures of the white paint. My repainted demo is red. However the serial will have to do on similar tractors, as no one really knows which were not painted red. I have read Guy Fay's interpretation, and he says they were painted in a group of consecutive white tractors, then IH might have stopped and restarted when they needed more -- apparantly no absolute proof of this. I never have liked the white tractors, if it worked for IH that is fine, they simply look wrong to me. I do like the gold demos, but on both it is only paint, nothing else was changed.
