    IH Gold Demos as they are known came with Gold painted fenders and hoods. Also a black decal about 8 inches long “Demonstrator” appeared on the rear of the hood. The Idea behind the demos was that dealers were supposed to use these to demonstrate the tractors and use them to sell existing inventory.
    The Gold Demos came in the 544, 656, 826, 1026, and 1456 models only. The serial numbers were completely random and there is no record of exactly how many tractors were used as Gold demos. To identify a true Gold demo is not easy. Checking the underside of the hood or fenders for gold paint or looking at the original steering and support casting to see they were black are ways to check for a Gold Demo.

    The IH 1456 was built from 1969 through 1971 and featured an IH 6.7 liter diesel six cylinder with 114 hp at the drawbar. It was also sold under the Farmall name. It was available with or without a cab as well as in 4x2 or 4x4 configurations. Rear dual tires was another option. ERTL released this 1/16 scale model in 1995.

    I have always liked it when ERTL has offered models of the demo tractors!

      I know less than nothing when it comes to tractors and ag equipment...I learn so much around here!
      The image file limits have been reset. We have over-limit warnings for the past 3 months and I've had to lower the image file limits. Upper limits now are 100,000 when we have some images that exceed 5,000,000. I know I've mentioned many times before, but it is very important to downsize images - doesn't matter if they are hosted elsewhere or here. I've set the pixels for no more than 1000 across the longest side, so if you resize to that all should be well. (The new limits are larger than what I typically use, and my images turn out just fine, so I know it shouldn't be a problem)

      Thank you for your understanding.
