Were any Cletracs of the 30's painted red ?  I have a 1936 40D that is all rust topside but has red paint underneath and on the inside of the track frame, rollers, sprockets, etc.  Thanks TEDV:)

They were a brown from 1930-35. See this paint color link.

I know they were all painted with red lead primer. Maybe that's what you see. My gramps started out at the company laying on his back with a brush painting red lead underneith them.

My gramps Howard van Driest was Experimental Engineer at Cletrac and Oliver Corporation. After the plant closed, he and my uncle started an excavating business, initially using Cletrac and Oliver Crawler tractors.
