Farmall Tractors: The Golden Age 1924-1954 by Lee Klancher
The Farmall tractors of the first part of the 20th century brought the Industrial Revolution to the farm, playing a key role in America's transformation from a primarily agrarian society to an industrialized nation. In Farmall Tractors 1924-54: The Golden Age, author Lee Klancher weaves the story of the development of the Farmall with the story of the American farm in the early 20th century. The reader will discover the Farmall's role in America's early 20th century exodus from the farm and how those that stayed on the farm used modern equipment _ particularly the Farmall tractor _ and contemporary business practices to become the world's most efficient agricultural producers. This book details the history of Farmall tractors and includes information about the original Farmall, the Regular, to the merger of the International tractor division with Case in 1984 using color photographs of original and restored Farmalls.
