Farmall (Enthusiast Color Series)by Lee Klancher
Farmall tractors are an American farm fixture. Drive through any rural area in the country and it won't take long to spot a Farmall M or H, its red paint faded to rust and spotted with the chips, dents, and dings that hard work inevitably bring. This book traces the roots of Farmall, from the McCormick dynasty to the first Farmall, the appearance of the F-Series and Letter Series, and ultimately, to the effective end of International with the CNH merger. Includes an appendix of Production Dates and Quantities.- Includes new photography of popular models- Includes updates on Case-IH merger as well as re-introduction of Farmall and McCormick brandsAbout the AuthorLee Klancher grew up a few miles outside of the small town of Brill in northern Wisconsin, and has turned his rural roots and passion for publishing into a way of life. Back in 1995, when first approached to do this book, he viewed tractors as useful tools for hauling wood, dragging out deer, and harvesting maple sap. Since that time, he has learned that tractors are prized by collectors for their ability to clutter up the yard, obliterate the paycheck, and raise hell with one's spouse. This is Lee's sixth book, depending on how you count. When not traveling the world in his tireless quest for the perfect mini-corn dog, Lee is working on a follow-up to his last book, Tractor in the Pasture.
