International Harvester red comes pretty close.

I need a color picture of a John Deere on land gang plow from the JD brochure catalog. I do not have a catalog old enough to have that one. Has to be 1912 or older. I have several of the furrow plow. Please post if you have one. Thanks

Thought i'd share these pictures here from Andover, SD 2016(James Valley Threshers) since i really didn't take enough show pictures to start a new thread. Kevins had this line of JD plows restored for nearly 20 years (4, 6, 8, 10, 12 and 14 Bottoms) The full line plows Saturday, and is always impressive. We used all Case engines this year since it was the JI Case Collectors Expo. I fired the 65 with 8 on Friday and 10 Bottoms Sat. i really didn't notice much difference once they were cleaning and set right, maybe just a few more scoops of coal to keep it near the pop off, and a little sharper exaust in the low spots. Thanks to my steerman Jeff Detwiler and steam lady Jeanie. we got our legs roasted on the second round when the nut came off the fire door baffle and i had to pull it off
Dad runs the 40 on 4, a 1922 (Rynda) 50 on 6, an early 60 on 8, 1915 65 on 10. '13 80 on 12 and the 1911 110 on 14
