What year were farmall cub demonstrates built

Postby JimCub48 » Fri Jan 21, 2022 10:45 am

Correct me if I am wrong, I thought the white demonstrator cub was only produced in the first 3 months of 1950 . I looked at the 2022 Red Power Round Up site, and noticed the 75 th anniversary special edition cover Farmall Cub Encylopedia ,it states the cover photo is a 1953 white demonstrator cub. I am not a cub purest but the may be a stretch.

Jim, You're correct. The production alternated red and white Cubs as shown in the database.

Early 1950 only.
There are two ways to get enough Cubs. One is to continue to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less.

I think it's just a typo.

White Demos where made in Jan-Feb-March of 1950.
They also made Red Cubs in that time frame as well.

I agree. Just a typo on the website. If it said that ON THE BOOK, you'd have to question every bit of knowledge that Kenneth Updike has ever shared...

There are 2 parts of that book, by different authors. The Updike part of the book is pretty accurate.

That model is tempting. But, I'm still a little sour that they're ignoring that the Super A is 75 as well.....Ok, I'm a lot sour about it! 8)

probably cannot afford to do both, it is very costly to for a small group to cough up the $$$ to run and pay for a show and they have to buy "X" amount of these collectables to sell, , its a lot to do to run these shows and pay for it all, we should be happy that they are having the show as it is and enjoy what is offered
