I remember seeing white and yellow ones at our local IH dealer when I was just a youngun, I really wanted one then, I figured it was just my size. :lol: I think in the 70's they were white and yellow, but I don't know when it started.

The factory color for the 140s was all red. I have seen many that were purchased for industrial applications that were painted Yellow from the factory, similar to the Industrial A tractors that were offered in Yellow from the factory, along with solid front axles, and other industrial options.

IH would paint the tractors almost any color that a customer wanted. I have seen photos of orange ones, but never saw a white one.

The Farmall A, C, M, and H all had a Demonstrator series in 1950, along with the Cub. I have a friend that has a white demonstrator Super A, and have seen many potos of the others. Again, like the Cubs, these were most likely painted red before selling to customers.

The 140s are basically the same tractor as the Super A, but came out in the 1960s, and I do not believe that there was ever a Demonstrator series in the 1960s, other than the gold demonstrator 14XX tractors in the late 1960s. I'm sure Jim Becker will be able to provide more details.

The only official factory created 1950 demonstrators were Cub, Super A, and C. Some dealers may have painted their left-over red H or M white to be an unofficial part of the program.

Yes, what George said. The white demos in 1950 were the Louisville tractors: Cub, Super A and C. As far as I know, it is the only time IH did white demonstrator tractors. Most of the rest of the time, demonstrators were tractors straight off the line, frequently they were heavily equiped with options and they used a few stick-on or hang-on signs to point out the features.

Oh yeah, on the yellow 140. IH sold many models for the industrial market. By some time in the '50s, they were typically painted yellow. Industrial tractors were much more likely to be all yellow, without any contrasting white parts. The yellow 140 above has a white grill, which I suspect is not "correct" for an industrial tractor. It does have the silver/black emblems that were typically used on industrial tractors.

They even made some super rare 140 Lowboys that were yellow. Brandon.
