IH 826 Gold Demo S/N 14387 Restoration Progress

Recommended Posts

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.
