Long Description:
This IH Farmall A type tractor is on display in the retail area of the combined shop and museum at Geysir. It is accompanied by a ram and a polar bear.

The plaque attached to the tractor reads:

Farmall A árgerð 1947
þetta er með fyrstu heimilis dráttarvélum á gúmmi hjólum sem fluttar voru til landsins. Vélin er 18 hestöfl.
Hægt var að fá dráttarvélina með mismunandi útbúnaði t.d. með sláttuvél, plóg og herfi.
Hún létti mörgum bondanum erfið bústörf, gangviss og lipur.
Eigandi er Bjarni Sigurðsson
