Relative of mine has found a picture of what he thinks, and is pretty sure is a Case tractor, probably around late 1942. He says the tractor is white or grey, and his mother is at the wheel, along with some other lady folk of the town, and one man, who is dressed like hes a salesman. He doesnt know where the pic was taken, or for sure when, but he knows its his mother driving, and a couple of the ladies he knew. So I was wondering if Case had a demo program where they painted tractors a different color for demostrators...

They did paint a C or two white. That and the 500 but that was 1954.

John, any chance of you posting this photo? If it's a CASE, the RC was a lighter grey than the L and C. They stopped making the grey tractors for the 1939 model year. The RC was also a flathead Waukesha engine.

Just remembered this post! Havent been able to get back down to my relatives house to scan the pic, but did come across something very similar. Google The Womens Land Army, there is a very simialr pic, although from different angle and women, and its in Britain, but the tractor is pretty much identical. Whats that tractor?

Well, you got my curiosity up! I went to looking and actually found the same pic he has. Unfortunately I cant link the pic here from work. Im going to call him tonight when I get home and see what the deal is, but yes I can agree its a Fordson.

A CASE C is similar to a fordson in size but the fordson has rounded gas tanks that is usually the dead give away. There were a few others that looked like a fordson though, such as a GMC Samson tractor but they had no hood and subsequently had a gap between the radiator and fuel tank.
