I have a box seeder that looks similar to that one in behind my storage building. Unfortunately I do not have any box seeder manuals.

Looks like a model MF. If there is no fertilizer hopper, it is model M.

Either cream or white depending on when it was built.

Then they would have been white. Cream was discontinued at about the end of '56.
