We went to a toy show yesterday and I always find myself looking through old lit more than the toys. The challenge is finding interesting stuff at a reasonable price now a days. I learn new stuff every time. In the one the DB's are shown in the old DB trim, I did not know they advertised them like that. Got a neat one on the 1200's, but I'll have to show that latter when the wife can't see how much this idiot had to pay for it, LOL.

This is a good question for both you life long CASE Historians. Had the DB acquisition not occured do think the Sunset color would have remained till IH came was picked up? The Power White was a eye grabber when introduced. I think the White made it easy to make the Spirit, I doubt the Spirit would have occured had the Sunset remained in use. Sounds odd, but just maybe we have to give DB a little credit for the birth of the Spirit. Comments anyone?

Rod, we got our first 885 DB in in December of 1971 I remember this well as in Jan of 1972 our shop burnt and I used the 885 to move and load many things to our new shop as it had a DB loader, the deal Case made with DB was that they had to have the Case/David Brown decals on all tractors starting in 1973 production year, I am thinking it took that long to move all the stock DB had on hand when the deal went thru, more of the deal was seen in the 1974 model year as they "merged" the two colors from each company the "Power White" was from DB to "Power Red" from Case, I know a lot of people did not like the new color scheme but I really did as I tought the DS paint faded quicker than the Power White, hope this explains it a bit cnt

I never minded the white as bad as the red when they merged,I know they probably did so they wouldn't chase the IH guys away,probably a good business decision ,but I liked the white better

The DB aquisition gave Case the inroad to the new European Common Market. By recoloring both brands, adding a red belly to the DBs and a white hood and sheet metal to Case, They had a readily recognizable Brand Name tractor line from the small DBs which had to gain broader acceptance here in North America, and the Case Line of American tractor which had to be accepted by European farmers. It was a mater of "one hand washing the other",and providing a product line that was well accepted on both sides of the pond. A simular situation resulted with the Case IH merger. Had to give the IH guys their color, but fortunately Case kept the Case styleing, and drive line until the Maxxums and Magnums.

PS, I personally liked the Case 94 paint scheme the best of all

Because of my inability to type, far to often I cut things short in my descriptions. The Spirit I was referring to earlier was the Spirit of 76 Tractor. Just wanted you to know.
