IH 720 plow.  One tail wheel and one depth wheel. I’ve asked a few people who’s opinions I respect and got different answers. Should it be 935 white or 901 white?  Could not find anything in the opp/setup manual on colors. Thanks for the input.

Mid to late 70’s as best I can tell. I think they were available along with the later 66 series tractors and through most of the 86 series.

My guess is 935 by that timeline. What do I win if correct?

I don’t know. It looks more 901 to me which would be an older color. That’s why I asked.

Here I was hoping to get free entrance fees to your local tractor pull next summer 😂

My guess is that it's the newer white . I was thinking 901 was older but I might have it backwards

If you come all the way over here I’ll pay your entry fee.

77’ buyers guide lists a 720 plow. Does not mention being “new” or anything. Can’t tell wheel color for sure in pics.

Yep!  Believe it or not, Off-white shades fade. 935 is correct.  Think 901 is correct on early & mid 1960's.  Ken Updike wrote up a complete guide to what IH white was usec when for IH Cub Cadet.com, 901,902,935.

   I remember my '65 #70 Cub Cadet was supposed to be 901, the body shop paint supply shop here in Madison had NO recipe for mixing us a quart of 901.

Got the old tires off. Date code and part # still on the rim inside. Looks like 5-76 so the plow is surely 76-77’ vintage I would think.
