Charlie, The tractors may be original but the paint schemes you describe are not! M's were painted all red at the factory unless they were a different color such as for road equipment, Gov't use etc. Probably either a dealer or an owner painted the creme on to make it resemble a "newer model" like a 450. The 350's and 450's were the first ones to have the white grilles and the white background behind the chrome Farmall letters.//FB

My Dad painted the grill, hood and gas tank on his '51 M white beneath the line that runs down the side in about 1960 or a little before. Kinda similar to the paint scheme on the 460/560. I guess upon closer examination, that could be considered "Original". My Super H has the whole grill painted white, and somewhere there's a '54 Super M-TA with the same paint scheme, and there was a '39 H that the last time I saw it (25+ yrs ago) was in Hillsdale, IL. setting in a fence row. Dad & I had repainted that '39 and fixed it all up when I was about in 7th or 8th grade. We traded it for My Super H 2 yrs later, about 1970. When I "Restore" My Super H, I will repaint the grill white, Not "Original", but Just the Way It Always was.

Today's Featured Article - Product Review: Electronic Ignition - by Staff. Oil, for example has come a long way in the last 50 years and I don't use anything but the latest API grade available. I've heard the arguments for non-detergent oils but would never trade it for today's formulations. Paint is another, the modern acrylic enamels are great for resistance to grease and fuel stains, retaining their shine and they last forever; unlike enamels and lacquers . Still another is the alternator. No doubt using the original generator keeps the tractor pure, but for thos ... [Read Article]
