TX to IN "IH 1456 Road Trip"

Recommended Posts

It was a quick trip but a fun one. 1st stop was at Coy Winslows and the Winlows Farm. Everyone knows Coys 1456 and his pristine paint, body work and detailing. Coy showed us the progress on a friends 1456 Gold Demo. We then viewed Coy's and his family collection and James Dean memorablia and history tied to Winslow Farms. Very nice time and he was very gracious to take on the paint and body work as well as show us around and entertain us. Not only is Coys 1456 and the 1256 he restored top notch but he has the 3 best Massey Fergusons ive ever seen. Theres also another original low hr 1456 that is sharp. 

After Coys we headed south to Richard Walkers. Barns full of neat stuff. Plows. 4wds, corn pickers, belly tank after belly tank and quick hitch after quick hitch and memorablia that would take 2 days to view. Now there's no pics from Richards. Just so much stuff put away and packed tight you cant get a good pic that it deserves. All super nice equipment and cool stuff. Richard is a 560 guy. Knows his 560s. Has a 1456 he bought new. Its was a very fun time seeing his collection. The new rubber and fresh paint smell was awesome in his barn. 

Left walkers at a cold windy sundon and met Jeff Foreman and his Son for dinner @ Texas road house. Steaks, beer and margaritas and more tractor talk and parts swaps. Great time, great conversations with great people. Great road conditions too.

Very nice 1456, but why can't people figure out that the alternator was painted red not silver. That always bugs me, just like black fuel caps. Anyway very nice workmanship for sure. Thanks for sharing Brian.

Im not a fan of the spray bombed all factory red look, because then filters, wiring, belts and manifold would all be red and after 1st service its was burnt, flaked, and filter changed. Its cool to see original red alternators on one.

That 1456 of Coys is amazing.    Saw it at a RPRU a few years ago.    The detail is amazing.   Probably twice as nice as new.....    Thanks for sharing Brian.

Question, just curious.   I assume that sandblasted unit is the Goldie you mentioned?   Made me think... how do they "certify" something like that so it can be totally stripped and returned to its original..and still be a proved to be a real gold demo??     Seems to me there has to be some way of issuing "authenticity", or anybody "in the know"  could sandblast and repaint one and how could you tell the difference.

Good documentation with before pictures and an honest person. But even then someone can get pics off the web and oops I must've forgot to photograph the S/N number before my restoration.

I have taken several pics over the years documenting the gold sheetmetal on this one. The back side if radiator side panels will be left original gold on back. It was just part of the deal. If you want a Coy Winslow paint job its done his way with that in agreement. Hes a paint and body guy. He wants a clean slate to work with. Progress and pics are posted of this 1456 sn 13313 under the restoration section.

That tractor has a 10SI alternator on it rather than the original 10DN so it being it is a replacement unit it would not have been painted.

Should have come up to the dealership, it's only a few miles northeast of Winslow's.

I had no idea about this place.  I'll bet that equipment looks even better in person.

Work takes me in that direction once in a while....I'll have to see if I can see the workmanship in person.

Thanks for sharing Brian!
