I believe Jakes of that vintage were originally dark green. That maybe a John deere reprint though!
I'd love to have that loader.

 The only one that Jake ever made that was Green was Oliver ,and it was only for a very short time I believe? And if it was an Oliver it is a very rare unit and worthy of a restore? Never the less a VERY rugged great working machine ! I have a few .

Thanks, best part is it runs, drives & the loader works decent. Gonna have to make a new bucket for it, and planning on putting bucket cylinder in middle instead of one the one side like it is now. The loader is completely homemade. and it was the main reason for the purchase.
