  1. Started My 806 L.P. restoration

    New hood ornament came chromed. Did add chrome hood bolts with a neoprene washer under the chrome washer to protect the paint. I felt the hood bolts were an accent without being excessive. Just my opinion.
  2. Started My 806 L.P. restoration

    Not suggesting mine are in Tony’s class but this is what my 656 row crop utility looks like with chrome grill.
  3. RPRU pics from today

    Nice pics! But you missed the featured 656s in the circle.
  4. IH golden plows

    The gold plow promotion was in 1959 & 1960 only. It was meant to build confidence in the updated 460 & 560 after the rear end bearing problems they experienced. Meant to get farmers trying a new plow in their own field behind the 4-560. I have a gold 312 & 412 and I have seen a gold 512 but they are more rare. I have also seen pics of a gold 3 btm rollover plow. They came with an extended rod welded to hyd hose loop that held a "gold demonstrator " banner above the plow. Most got cut off by now. They also came with thin strips of metal like you sometimes see part numbers on bolted to the rear of each molboard. They had "gold" stamped on the thin metal strip.
  5. Milk Tanker Question

    Insulated well. Will keep a load of milk within 2 degrees of the temp when it leaves the Midwest to when it arrives in California. No refridgeration equip. Just insulation.
  6. Another I.H. Classic stays in Red Power Family

    Congratulations Tony! That must be a very impressive line up you have accumulated. Unique and 1st class. Someday ill be out to see it if admission isn't too high. But never say never. There is always another one that would fit in the lineup. Randy.

  9. Dirt Boyz auction

    I have no idea how the lines got there or what they mean. Anyone know?

    Tony, it's not just as easy as an application form to join the Gold Club. There is a whole initiation ritual process that you have to go through. It's not pretty. You might want to leave the lights on in the shop at night for awhile. Do you remember "shiveres" when people first got married? I think it's something like that. 😎 Hosting a West Coast RPRU would go a long way towards a membership. JK. Congratulations! You'll love the 1456 & you know the cost to restore one correctly so you did fine. Randy
  11. THE INTERNATIONAL GOLD DEMONSTRATOR'S (Post Your Pics)

    Thx again for posting Bill. The 656 diesel utility was done last year before RPR in Huron but wasn't on this thread so didn't want it to feel left out. It was still gold when we got it here in Pine Island & had original dealer stickers on it from Slippery Rock PA. I found little about that dealership due it was closed in mid 70s.

    Thanks & good to hear from you. Had some nice background pics but too large. Inexperienced photographer, me. Going to SD show in 2 weeks will try again.
