Anew Special Edition IH model 856D Collector Replica will commemorate the 2000 Ontario Toy Show, held annually at Woodstock, Ontario, in August. Case IH authorization is only for this show, so collectors will have just one opportunity to obtain the unique, special limited edition.
Diecast by Scale Models in Dyersville, Iowa, the replica will have an inscription 'Ontario Show, 8-27-2000, Woodstock' cast into the unit. Show management will control the Canadian 'Maple Leaf Medallion mounted on each tractor as a seal of authenticity.
The 1/16 scale model will feature a ROPS with canopy and rubber tires with two-toned silver and red rims. It will also have a nicely detailed, separate diecast engine, front weights and three-point hitch.
A limited quantity will be produced, based on the number of orders received. Requests processed by the September 15 deadline will be shipped in November.
