Paint and decals are the only way.There is no serial that marks the difference between a regular case gt and a demostrator.

Didn't talk with Steve yet, but talked with Jack and he told me the only way is the hood and fenders. Also indicated that if there were 'flaws' that prevented it from being sold as a 'perfect' unit then it was given the paint job and decals and that is how it earned the 'demonstrator' name. Saying that if you get one, to peel the original hood and fenders from it as soon as possible and replace, repaint a donor set and get new decals for it... as the original hood and fenders are the only thing that proves yours is an original. That way if anyone says this is a copy...you say 'oh ya' and pull out the original hood and fenders...then they shutup!

wilber rest assured that there are probably only a handful of guys that would care enough to argue with you about whether it was a copy or not.
If you like that paint scheme make you one. The ones that care will know, everyone else will say cool.
Remember it's just a mower.

Wilber...rest assured, there is no harm in being genuine! A vintage tractor is cool nonetheless...which is why we collect them and restore them...not to satisfy others in being something we are not...but to showcase our sweet tractors, as they existed, the day they left the factory and in many 'cases' better. IMHO
