ANTIQUE TRACTOR PAINT INFORMATION: According to International Harvester records, early IH Farmall and McCormick Deering tractors were painted grey with red wheels. On or around November 1, 1936, the paint scheme was changed to all red. This was for safety reasons of better visibility, as many tractors were then driven on the roads. On special order, the tractors could be painted yellow, orange, and other colors at the factory.
