Yellar or Red

Postby Ralph » Wed Mar 17, 2004 9:21 pm

I am told that this 63 Lo-Boy #15735 J was originally sold in both yellow and white and Red and white.
It appears to have been yellow under the present coat of red.
any suggestions as to what color it should be?

Thanks Ralph

colour

Postby tobaccofarmer » Wed Mar 17, 2004 11:58 pm

Yes my loboy serial # 16878 is yellow and always has been yellow, I read in that cub book by Ken Updike that right around your serial # and inbetween mine IH decided yellow and white was more appropriate I just dont know exactly the serial # break where the colour change took place? I should read that book again and maybe its in there? I would like to know too! If there is yellow underneath your red, then I would assume yellow on yours, but who knows?

I have a 62 LoBoy in the same situation. I made the mistake of expressing my opinion that it would look nice in yellow and white. My lovely wife told me if it gets a yellow paint job, it gets sold. Therefore, it gets a red and white suit instead.

I made the statement a while back that I would like to aquire a yellow and white loboy.........WRONG :shock: :!:

"I don't like that color...why do you want that color? I like the red ones better".

So, if I am to continue buying cubs and stay in good with the wife, looks like I'll be gettting more red.

Paint it yellow & white. If the S.O. (significant other) complains, tell them the yellow/whites are the rare high $$$ value industrial model. If that thinking fails to impress them, say that the yellow/white painted ones are like the red/white ones, cept they are not ripe yet........ :lol:

If you still can't persuade them, just paint it red/white and have the S.O. buy you a nice dinner or take you on a romantic tractor ride. :D

How is the tractor broken down into white and yellow? Is the gas tank hood white? Are the doglegs white?

I have a 61 that is yellow all over, but I really don't want to go back that route, but don't want something that looks hokey.

yellow lo boys

Postby cublo » Mon Mar 29, 2004 9:31 pm

I have a 1962 lo boy that is all original yellow. What was the most common color for the lo boys in '62? Seems like I have seen more yellow ones than red ones? Harold

My '59 was all yellow. When I get around to repainting it, I think I'll go with white for the grill and wheels.
