International Pedal tractor I got it when my granddad got a new 574 international in 1974 and I have both of them today.

I’ve never had a tractor that was mine alone; I’ve always inherited or shared expense. The tractor I learned to drive with for many years was a Ferguson 30 exactly like this one.

Far more valuable, than the truck I was driving at the . Kept it probably ten years, and sold it for $3500. Never made a single major repair to that old thing. My current tractor, has been in the shop more, the last year than it has been out. I need to try and wag to town early this week. I miss the old days, when they made to last.


My first new one was a 67 135 when I sold it in 07 it was still humming along.

Massey 65 diesel with power steering. Unsure of year. 50’s. Smokes like a chimney but has pulled anything I’ve put behind it. Learned to drive on a JD 3020 diesel narrow front end. Great tractor

Package deal. Ford 8N, Case 830 diesel, 7' JD 2 way plow (S/N 2), and hay wagon for $2500.
Worked my tail off with all of them. Had to take out a loan to buy them.

My first tractor was a 1963 Massey Ferguson Super 90, I bought it in 1976. I went to get it in Ohio with my Mom as I was driving with a learners permit.
