As Jim said about changing colors and years. Here is the paint decision from 1954 where we see it was changed again. I can't find the decision for 1948.

When you look at the paint decisions, you need to read carefully to understand what they are saying and what they are not saying. The Cub-194 plow, as Barnyard posted, is a good example. It says "bottom, colter and jointer shall be standard colors as now painted. . .". After those parts are removed, the only part left is the beam. So when it says "entire plow to be painted red." it is only the beam that is painted red. Likewise, the universal mounting frames are not part of the cultivator. So when the entire Cub-144-A cultivator is to be painted blue, it hasn't said anything about the mounting frames.

To know the color of plow bottoms or universal mounting frames, you need to look back farther into history.

The original product ID on the hood would have been a water transfer decal. They didn't hold up well when stored outside.


Just a clarification. The decal that is on the hood was used on cubs early in the run. In today's decal kids from Maple Hunter, I think the only option is the standard IH with a white square in the background. I didn't like how that looked on my 1949 Cub, so I modified the replacement decal by carefully cutting out the emblem from the background. Unorthodox and not original, but I liked the look!

I believe that TM Tractor Parts has that emblem available as a mylar or vinyl stick-on. I can't currently verify that, due to their site being down for the holidays.

edit: Came in second again.


They are blue - what's left of them that is. The sickle bar frame is blue, and that still works.

couldnt agree more. i am a member of the 1941 Historical aircraft group in geneseo, ny and go to the annual airshow. i drove 450 miles to go to the thunder over michigan this summer, they had a dozen restored p51 mustangs including a A36 apache an extremely rare ground attack version of the P51. the worlds only flying B29 superfortress was there flying as well, that's the b29 FIFI. i am such a fanatic when it comes to warbirds i spent quite a bit of money and flew in a restored B17 flying fortress which would have to be my favorite world war II aircraft, i have actually gone on those flights twice. what an experience a "muscle car" for the air. i also love my farmall cub and love how in 2012 i can still make it an effective tractor. they are well built and built by americans.

Gary, those B-25's were gathering @ Wright-Pat for the last Doolittle Raid reunion. Wish I could've made it there. My Son-in-law was stationed there at the time. They got a front-row seat. (from the front yard)

You're correct, Stan, it had slipped my mind just what event it was. I'd bet they got to see a great show. They used the airport at Urbana as a gathering point so they could fly into Wright Patterson as a group, I'm sure that was a sight to see. It also made for a great show at Urbana, there was a heck of a crowd there!

WOW. :shock: I have zero military, and zero aviation, background. But as I was saying on another thread, I have always been interested in WWII history, and my two favorite warbirds from WWII would have to be the B-17 and the B-29.

There are two aviation items on my bucket list--one is to take a ride in a B-17. The other is to see a B-52 fly by IN PERSON.

I saw many of these in 1971. An awesome sight at the time just watching it leave the ground, let alone wondering how it ever stayed in the air.
