A 1946 International McCormick Farmall Model A tractor at the Historic Preservation of Antique Tractors and Equipment of Eastern Michigan’s (H.P.A.T.E.E.M) show at Izzi Farms in Ira Twp, Michigan last fall. This Model A has an offset seating position, unlike most tractors, apparently for improved vision and an easier time cultivating smaller or more delicate crops. International branded the feature “Culti-Vision”). The 3,750 lb tractor has a 113 cubic inch four cylinder engine with 18.3 horsepower at that belt, a bit higher than the 16 HP PTO rating. When it was introduced in 1940 the Farmall Model A cost $575. If that sounds like a bargain, it seems to have been. Adjusting for inflation that works out to $9,572.48 in 2013 dollars, which is less than what an 18 HP Mahindra tractor will cost you these days.

"...I've been over to Cars In Depth on many occasions. Barring the whole 3D thing which drives me up the wall (that's a personal thing, though), I like the content, the writing, and the simple formatting. You do a great job over there, and I am impressed."
