Jim, The beautiful Farmall Cub shown on the cover of Mr. Updike's book is a 1957.

You can use whichever seat you like, 57's came with both.

AFAIK, there are pictures of every style Cub in the Updike book. There were four major eras:

1. Original screen grill '47-'54
2. "Farmall 400" style grill '55-'58
3. 4-bar '59-'63
4. Square hood '64-'79

Matt,

You left out one. The early '47 had a much finer screen. It was a distinctly different grille, and is much sought after.

And actually, the square hood style can be further subdivided into three separate sub-styles:

1. Red with the short hood decal
2. Yellow & white with the short hood decal
3. Yellow & white with the long hood decal

Careful about starting down the decal and sticker differences. Things start multiplying.

Although they are small, I believe you can find a picture of nearly every major style on the Cub FAQ. I think a square hood Farmall is the biggest omission. Anybody have a picture of one?

George:

I know you probably posted this info before, but I didn't have Granny, so the info really didn't apply to me...... :oops: another one of those Getting Older moments.....

What is the difference in the screen, and what is the size of the material. Maybe Bruce will be able to get hold of some of that as well as the screen for the 48 and up. :)

Rudi,

I wouldn't be surprised if the early screen is easier to get. The wire should be the same size, but the mesh should be 8/inch (I think) instead of the later 5/inch. At least one of the list members has one (Robinson) of the early version as a double check. Mine accidently flew the coop in 1999.
