Franklin Mint Precision Models Presents The Farmall F-20 Farm Tractor
As the Great Depression sputtered to a close, the Farmall F-20
tractor kept the heart of America’s family farms beating
strong: this workhorse of the fields could farm an impressive 200
acres at a top speed of 3.75 mph! Now, Franklin Mint Precision
Models, in association with Case Corporation, creates a 1:12 scale
model of the coveted Farmall F-20 tractor.
Crafted from more than 170 separate parts, this 11 inch long
model is hand-painted in blazing IHC Red and features operable
steering. It’s packed with authentic detail complete down to
the engine, where every pulley, wire, and bolt of the sturdy
four-cylinder power plant is accurately re-created. A reproduction
of the original Farmall Factory brochure is also included with the
The Farmall F-20 farm tractor model is available exclusively
