At least I hope the picture turns out. I hate to use this board as a sale board but I couldn't figure out how to post a picture on the Trading Post. I hope all you good folks will forgive me.

This is an International Harvester. Don't know the model or year. 4 cyl. diesel. 3 point hitch. It has seen better days but it does run. Email me for more info if you or anyone else is interested.

the way tractors are going nowdays, if it's close to running you're looking at $1000 worth of iron there. Would be a nice addition to anybody's collection. :)

Look on left side of the bell housing (just behind the engine) for an aluminum plate. Should have a model number and serial number on it, if it is still there and legible.
If it runs, it may be worth more than you realize.
ytmag (companion site to this one) has a "help identify" section you could post a pic on also. Try to get a pic with the loader high enough to see more of the tractor underneath.
Post back what you find, we'll try to help you out with the identity.

Thank you all.
Lifting the loader high for a picture will have to wait a couple of weeks though until hubby gets back. I think all the identifying marks are gone. Cody is an aircraft mechanic and has searched that tractor from end to end for identification numbers. Perhaps it is a collectors item for someone, but we were thinking more along the lines of maybe helping someone starting out with a cheap tractor. Although it would be pleasing to see it all fixed up and beautified like some of the older tractors I have seen posted here.

By gum, that doesn't look bad at all. Is that radiator original? I'd be proud to have that one in my stable.

Les, if I had to guess (which I do), I would say yep! That rad must the original. Leaks like a seive. LOL

j if you can find a serial number somebody around here can find out more for you like the year goes the battle with the horses , all well i hope.

Thanks Uncle Toolman...grin.
Blue seems to be feeling a little better today. I gave him a small dose of bute this morning and it helped with the pain. He sure is itchy. I would describe in detail how it looks, but it's close to dinner time for some folks. Little Spirit is now in the same small paddock as him and sharing the sick stall. She is very snotted up. Both have good appetites though, and are not feverish. (sheesh, sounds like I'm talking about my kids)

haha, yup just about to have a bite to eat here , well with the TLC your giving them im sure they will be ok , sure a nasty thing to have to deal with isn,t it, i think i hurt more than my animals when they aren,t feeling good, did you check to see if (dusty) i think it was you said was still ok , did you check to see if she had a scar, you,ll be able to tell sometimes that way if she was ever exposed to it before and now probably immune,wishing you all the best, say hi to cody. btw nice tractor he got.

So far Dusty is not showing signs but I'll likely know within a week if she is going to get it too. The only way I'll be able to see a scar on that hairy elephant is to shave her head bald. You should see the beard on that mare. I'll just have to hold my breath and wait and see.

Thanks, I'll tell him hi for you. He has safely arrived in Texas as of this afternoon. Yup, that new tractor sure is a pretty color! It's the brightest thing on the property right now.(gotta' wear shades). I suggested making a flower planter out of the old one, but he ain't buying it.

collie sends her best , she said poor julie all alone trying to deal with all this, wishes she could help you somehow,shes busy studying (taking a bunch of new courses for work you know what the govt. is like up here,) and hasn,t been on here much, and here i thought she knew it all , after all shes been telling me what to do for the last 24 years, lol.that tractor would go for at least 2500 up here so don,t short change yourself course a flower pot would be ok to i suppose haha.
