My Tractor

My Tractor

Secretly, every woman wants an antique tractor, and this one's mine. It's a 1950 International Farmall Cub. I bought it from a farmer in 2001 in somewhat rougher shape than you see here. It earns its keep plowing snow and doing garden chores. It's actually a relatively rare "white demonstrator" -- in 1950, International took an unspecified number of tractors, painted them white, sent them to dealers to demonstrate all the new features, and then repainted them red and sold them. It doesn't really raise its value much, but it's got all the options that you could add that year, such as lights, sprung seat, PTO, wheel weights and hydraulics.
