paint color for my plow.

I an hoping to paint my old disk plow when the weather warms up a little more if my health permits. I have found traces of blue paint on the rear casting, but don't know if it was all blue or not. Has anyone ever seen one still in the original paint that might know?

Check the IH Paint Committee decisions. I am thinking the rear wheel maybe cream, the main frame and steering contraptions and lift lever are red and the wheel spindle and hub; along with the disk plow hub to be blue.

My dad had one on a 1947 and it was blue. But you know how it is the dealer could have painted it white red or blue

49, that is a good looking rig.
The rear main casting (in shadow in icture) definitly has traces of blue on it.

Searching the archives is a little unhandy with dialup, but Jim Hudson was kind enough to look up the decisions and send me the links. Originals were blue, and the decisisn dated March 1948 changed it to blue. Since I have found traces of blue on mine, I'll go back with blue.
