  1. This IH 826 Gold Demo was bought in Chico TX and sold new in the Area. I first came upon it by going to a guys place who was parting out a 1066 black stripe. He had an 826 sitting out side and I checked it over and it was a regular 826, he had another in the shop he was rebuilding the front axle on. I walked past the steering colum and saw it was black and then noticed the DEMONSTRATOR sticker still on the hood. I asked him if he would consider selling it and after a few minutes I walked out the owner of that 826 gold demo. It had a junked out Diamond cab but he also had a set of Fenders for it, one was the original gold fender. At first it had 11L16 6bolt wheels, 18.4-38 wedgelock rears, 3pt, Mechanical Seat, Standard Steering, and T/A. Ive changed out and added a few things and this is how I have it set up now. I would like to find a coolant conditioner kit for the D358 too. T/A 18.4-38 on wedgelock wheels 10.00-16 8 Bolt fronts 10 IH 75lbs Suitcase Weights 2 sets of Wheel Weights preside 3pt 2 SCVs w/ front mount Aux Hook ups Oval Muffler Open Station Tilt Steering 540/1000 PTO Mechanical Seat
  2. Friend and Board member Jim Hartman (Axial-Flow) sent me these pics of his 1456 gold demo restoration progress.
  3. I'm the 4th owner of his 1456. It was sold new At Goss Imp. in Honey Grove TX to Ralph Owens of Allens Point TX. Mark H. Goss started the dealership in 1940. He ran it until his death in 1972, and his Sons Mark H. Goss Jr. and Harry Goss took over the dealership until it closed in the mid 80s. Mark H. Goss Jr died in 2001 and Harry Goss is still living. I contacted Harry Goss to come and look at this 1456 after I got it to fill in some history gaps and confirm that it did indeed sell new at Goss Imp. He walked up to it and said not only does he know the history of it but he sold it new. There use to be a picture that hung in the dealership of the Goss's and Ralph Owens standing by the 1456 gold demo the day it sold new but it has been lost to time.
