I.D. my cub please

Postby deathbypsi » Sat Dec 04, 2010 3:04 pm

Ok if you read my intro in the welcome area you will see Im new to these tractors. I just started ripping into mine and have a question about what year and model I have. My father told me it was a 1954 but doing a web search I think it turns out to be a 1948. My tag on the chassis says FCUB serial# 43412. Can anyone confirm this?

This is what it looks like right now.

What grille does it have on it?
That will also help confirm year.

Frank,
I wouldn't go by the grill because the later round nose grills (multibar and four bar) were sold as replacements for the earlier grills, and it is not uncommon to find the early models with later grills.
May you always have as many landings as you do takeoff's.........

Paul..I was only using the grille as possible starting point..Sometimes they may have been chaged so it is not 100% accurate.
