I think if you had cash they'd build them in just about any color you wanted...especially if you were buying a job lot of them. My '35 LA was factory green w/ a red flywheel and skids

Saw a factory yellow one once on a Lilliston Hay Press made in Georgia.
Surprisingly, it could have passed for a #15 IHC press only larger and had Lilliston cast into the side bearing plates.

A friend of mine has a white one. He thinks it may have been a salesmans sample.

Daniel, I also have a white one. I asked a question on here several months ago about the possiblity of it being a dealer sales sample just like the IH tractors were. Mine was definately originally white and not primer.
