The Complete Model-by-Model Encylopedia...Plus Classic Toys, Brochures, and Collectibles
This is the first book to feature every Farmall model. It chronicles the background of McCormick-Deering and International Harvester and outlines the beginnings of IH's production of the treasured Farmall tractor from its inception in 1923 (the lightweight, general purpose row-crop tractor that could literally 'farm all') until the last model rolled off the assembly line in the mid 1970s. Highlights include stories of the innovative spirit of the 'McCormick Men', the battle with John Deere to produce the best-selling, most popular tractor, and the challenges IH faced when the 560 and 460 models failed in the field. This comprehensive volume also includes descriptions and hundreds of colour photographs of all models, complete with performance comparisons (based on the University of Nebraska tests); chronicles the exciting beginnings of International Harvester; and places IH events in a larger historical context. But wait, there's more! The text is complemented a mix of artwork: fabulous current colour photographs, historic black-and-white images, period ads, brochures, and collectibles.
