Long Description:
Two of those remain. High Hand Nursery is the owner of this old tractor and it reminds folks of how gardening used to be done.
A home garden could be several acres in the 1940's.
Gasoline was more available than diesel.
The Farmall was one of the most popular (easier to maintain?) and common choices of its day. There were multiple models.
This one still retains the red paint.
The F series was phased out during 1939. The F-14 with rubber tires listed for $900 in 1938 & 1939.
They were built by International Harvester. 27,396 were produced.
The Models A, H, and M were the successors.
