Nuther decal question

Postby John *.?-!.* cub owner » Tue Mar 09, 2004 4:06 pm

Should the decals for a 49 say "McCormick Deering Farmall Cub"? What about for a 48?
If you are not part of the solution,

John, the break from McCormick Deering vs McCormick decals came sometime in mid to late 49. I think Jim Becker knows what the serial number break was.

What Bigdog said pretty well covers anything I know. Guy Fay's Letter Series book gives a July date for the change. The catch is that I believe that was the DECISION date. It would have gotten to the tractors some time later, probably only after using up an existing stock of decals. I'm inclined to think most '49 models had the earlier decal. The '48 models would have, of course, had the McCormick-Deering decal.

48/49 Decals

Postby Kirk » Wed Mar 10, 2004 7:48 am

John,

Though I can't answer the decal question, maybe I can help narrow the timing down as I have both a '48 and a '49. Both wear their original decals which are "McCormick Farmall Cub".

Serial #'s are:
1948: # 43581
1949: # 98825

This decal question arose out of a PM I sent John concerning the decal set he sent with the tractor I am putting back together for him. His tractor is a '48 model and he sent the set that reads "MCCORMICK DEERING FARMALL CUB" on the hood decals. The decals that are on it now read "MCCORMICK FARMALL CUB" and are too new to be original. My dad recently purchased a '48 cub (SN 50246) and it, too, is wearing it's original decals which faintly read "MCCORMICK FARMALL CUB". I wonder which is correct :roll: :?:

CB,

Either one would look good, but the original said McCormick Deering. Most likely his '49 did too. Only the latest '49's dropped the "Deering". Some of my early ones have the wrong decals. I don't worry about it. As long as they have decals, they don't look too nekkid. :lol: The decals without "Deering" are a lot easier to find.

Thanks George. I will use the set that reads "MCCORMICK FARMALL CUB" on Dad's cub since it is more readily available. 8)

I have noticed when looking at the pictures in Ken's book that the cubs pictured with hood decals, other than the early "circle cubs", use the "MCCORMICK FARMALL CUB" decals. :roll:

That decal set was produced by someone that either didn't know or didn't care, a situation that is quite common with aftermarket decals for IH equpment.

Bud:, I had to look through my paper work and I got them on eBay over a year ago. I just counted the decals and there are 10 in the set. I dont know how good they are or will be but I paid $23.39 total with s & h.
