If you farmed the land fifty years ago, you probably owned or leased something a lot like this 1947 International tractor — a seriously handy thing to have. Reader Brad Huffman posted up his dad’s latest find, and from what we can tell it’s pretty well preserved. Brad says a few issues need to be worked out, though.
I’ll be redoing the mess of spaghetti that is the wiring/electrical. Someone converted the 6 volt system to 12 volt, and borked it up a bit along the way. May keep the 12 volt system, but may also go back to the original 6 volt. Not sure yet.
A Flickr commenter raised the question, is this an old Farmall Cub or a Farmall “A”? To be honest, we don’t know enough about old-school farm equipment to make the call, so we’ll leave that part up to you. Anyone out there a farm equipment aficionado?
