David, welcome to the forum! Cubs underwent a style change in 63. The early cubs had the rounded nose like early cubs. Later 63's had the flat or squared-off nose like other IH tractors of the period. There are some pictures of both styles at this link:

Just scan down the page and you will find pictures. Better yet, read your way down the page. It is information you should know anyway. Then check the sticky post at the top of the forum for links and information. Sites such as Rudi's manual site can be quite valuable at times.

David,

Welcome to the forum. You will find people here are friendly, knowledgeable and extremely helpful. Not sure where you live in Tn, but next summer the Red Power Round Up will be held in Lebanon (middle Tenn). Check it out. And by the way, Rocky Top is my favorite song.

David, good to hear from a neighbor. I'm in Rogersville. We're currently restoring a '51 Cub that my dad just bought, maybe we can swap some info.
