Farmall A Demonstrator?

Postby MaineDad » Sun Oct 18, 2009 6:30 pm

Guys,

I'm trying to figure out if my neighbor's A is a demonstrator. It is red, but a lot of white shows up under the red. The serial number is 284204. Can anyone help me figure this out?

Thanks,

284204 would make it a 1950 Super A. Without knowing the SA demo serial number range, I'd say it's possible.

The commonly accepted range of Super A demonstrators are 281269-285398. So that would make your neighbors Super a a demo

The commonly accepted range for C are 47010-54410

As stated, those numbers are the "accepted range". But documentation is poor on nearly everything demo related. From what I have seen, the demos are probably all in that range, but I am not convinced that everything in that range was originally a white demo.
