IH Loader Paint Color

Sat Jun 25, 2005 7:34 am

This is likely a Jim Becker question.

Does anyone know the original color for a 1701 IH loader frame? I've been told that it was IH 902, but I checked the Wisconsin Historical Society collection of Paint Committee Decisions and the 2001-2000-1501 Series was listed as IH 901. THe photos I've seen of these loaders look pure white. I'm in the process of painting my 340 Utility, and I know the white trim is 901. Just wanted to get the loader color right since I have to paint it anyway.

Thanks

I would follow the paint decisions. Lacking anything else to go by, I would use the same color I used on the tractor it will go on.
