While we're reminicing... I just found these old pictures of our dealership. My guess is that it's 1972. The David Browns were not labeled Case yet. I believe that when they went to white (I'm sure that DB didn't call it Power White) and Power Red they started labeling them Case. I believe that is the first time Case used the Power Red/Power White combo. That is the biggest and smallest tractor that we sold. Gregg

I'm not sure on the small one but the big one is a 2470. It is the biggest tractor that we ever sold. It was used (with a Degleman Blade) to plow the streets of Haverhill, Ma. until last year. Gregg

Gregg - Yes, thank you for sharing. Those are some great lookin' tractors! Yeah, sure, I'll be the first one to agree modern technology is great even when it pertains to agribusiness machines with GPS, auto guidance systems, auto steer, implement monitoring systems, and all the internal feedback and monitoring technology in the modern combines, but I still like the old iron style and craftsmanship. The designs of those old machines just look awesome. :thumbup:

Thank You for posting the pictures. I most likely saw all those Racine Built tractors as they were being built, I might have touched them or sat in one. Way back then I was the Assembly Line Trouble Shooter for all the models built there. Brings back some good memories. :coolphotos:

Thanks Again
Ted

Ted, The first time that I went to service school in Racine one of the old time Case guys told our class that the David Browns were built in the same factory in England that built Matchbox toys. I think he was kidding but it is safe to say that the idea of importing the small tractors wasn't real popular in Wis. Gregg

The old Case guy was probably Harry Kline, he could really tell some stories. I believe the main reason Case bought David Brown was to be able to get into the European market, it was such a big seller over there.
