I would paint it IH #50 so there is an example close to me. :wink: Just tell him you looked up the code and that is what it was.

My bad. I thought this guy said it went until the end of production.

Damon K. said: (quoted from post at 14:15:10 06/25/12) I work for a PPG mixing bank. IH #50 is still available, So is IH

#2150. The 1102B and 201A are no longer available due to the

lead changes. The best thing you can do is, if you know the

underside of the hood or rear of air cleaner set up or anything

like that, has NEVER been painted and has the factory color on it,

you can bring the piece in to have it "scanned" and they can mix

that color. I did this myself with a dash from a Farmall 460.

Witch was the factory grey, found a good spot, and it mixed

perfectly. 1937-1961 was #50. 1962-1980 was #2150. Now

keep in mind when the "New Style 1958-1962 " 460-560 models

came, the paint change came in as well with the 201A '58-'59

and 1102B mid '59-'62.[/quote:b498ed5302]

CNKS said this many times before. Follows what he said here with some more details.

[quote:b498ed5302="CNKS"](quoted from post at 07:14:23 01/04/12) I agree, except that the IH archives say the sequence was IH 50, IH 1102B, IH 201, and IH 2150. 50 was 1936-mid year 1949; 1102B mid 1949-1958; 201 1958-1961 (460-560, ect); 2150, 1961-up with the introduction of the 404-504 etc. Was changed to some other shade in the 70's, I think.
