I have previously identified my treasure as an International Harvester manure spreader built about 1913. I am hopeful to restore it by 2020 for use as a July 4 parade float filled with political candidates.
My research suggests it is an International Harvester product, but I can’t tell if it’s a Low Cloverleaf or Low Corn King model. I know that IHC bought the Cloverleaf company in 1905, but I don’t know the origin of the Corn King name. Their paint is completely different, with the Cloverleaf being primarily green and the Corn King being red. Both have yellow iron wheels, though I’ve seen sales brochures showing black iron wheels.
I’d appreciate any assistance in determining which model this is, so I can restore it correctly.
