    The older Euclid is the original Euclid Green, officially called "Euclid Chartreuse". It is a lighter green than the newer Terex "Euclid" green. The Terex version had a darker green look than the old Euclid color. I remember buying both colors when painting equipment back in the 80's. The Euclid color does not look good on a metal storage building, that I can tell you from experience. Neither color looks good on a pickup truck either.

    That green is not bad, but it looks nothing like a solid Euclid green . The color shown is much brighter green, in fact, that looks a lot like the green Dodge/Plymouth used on their sporty cars. When you get a chance, paint one in Euclid green and post it on here. :)
    Another green color not meant for vehicles is J.D. green. My uncle painted his farm truck in JD green. Yuck!

    On this topic of Euclid Green, my first boss in the shop was a golfer and had the guys in the shop paint his older Harley Davidson golf cart while they were painting a Euclid one day! Bet everyone knew when he was out on the course!

    I disasgree..... think JD should start making Pick-up trucks (they have the capacity in their factories, and the dealer network to back it up)
    Simple 3/4 ton 4x4 only, and with the addition of dual tires, a 1 ton version. With one of their many diesel engines, and no frills.

    Sell to the contractors they already have as customers.
    Qty (2) versions (different by paint job only)
    1. Version #1 for farmers, sold thru the AG dealerships, JD green with a JD yellow stripe.
    2. Version #2 sold thru the construction dealerships, JD yellow with a JD green stripe.

    Heck, you would be guaranteed 10k sales each year just to the "Green & Yellow Underwear crowd" alone, and the fleet sales might prove good, offering the trucks as a add in to a large machinery order.

    Hank I spotted this lonely Euc from the freeway on the drive over to work on my friend's place, and had to go back on the way home. It got dark but it was an R35 next to the Ford water truck.

    Yup, JD could build them like mail trucks/step vans, rivetted aluminum panels.
    And a simple welded box tube frame, leaf springs all around.
