I.H.C. Dealer's Catalog Gives Color Information

| July/August 1987

The pictures on this page came from an I.H.C. dealer's showroom book. According to the catalog's owner, LeRoy A. Baumgardner, Jr. of 1710 Hanover Pike, Littlestown, PA 17340, these books were strictly for the dealers' use as they are serial numbered. It is a 1916 edition issued by the I.H.C. branch house in Baltimore, MD to Ensor and Gray-bill Hardware Co., New Windsor, MD, serial number 55.

Several of the slides are marked 'Grand Prize Winner San Francisco Exposition.' The Exposition was held in 1915, and was very much like a World's Fair; International Harvester Co. won almost all of the awards that year given for farm machinery.

Detailed descriptions of the pictures are as follows:

A.  This tractor introduced in 1915 and built until 1922 was one of the most popular tractors built by IHC up until that time with a total of 78,363 built during this period.

B.  This tractor built from 1915 to 1917 with a total production of 14,065 was IHC's answer for the small farmer's tractor needs. At the time this tractor sold for $675.00 F.O.B. Chicago. IHC also offered an Oliver model 62 mounted plow for this tractor.

C. Almost 5,700 of these trucks were built between 1915 and 1923 and sold for $1,450.00.
