1952 Farmall Cub restoration

Postby bfpjpth » Tue Aug 31, 2004 8:33 am

I have decided to begin a total restore of my 1952 Farmall Cub tractor. I am interested in finding out the color of paint used on the 1952 Farmall Cub. Was everything painted International Harvester red. My tractor is currently all red with the exception of the front and rear tire rims which are silver. Also the front grill that was on my tractor when I got it is a thick painted white metal frame with wire mesh behind it. Was this the one used on the 1952 Farmall, or is this one from another year? How about original tires? What brand of tires were usually used? Where they Goodyears or Firestones? I would appreciate an help I can get.
