1953 Farmall Super C
13 February 2006
The tractor was at the ranch before it's retirement. Its main job for over 30 years was to pull the hay rake. In its later years, everyone just left it sitting in the weeds most of the time. I was the only one to use it the last years at the ranch, so it was given to me.
My Grandpa bought this it new, so it has been in the family for its entire life. This will look good when fixed up and being pulled behind my 1965 GMC 1-ton to shows.
I have made a few changes to the tractor over the years, one being switching over to 12 volt with an alternator. It also has red lights and a siren added for parade use.
The amp gauge shorted out and fired the stock wiring, so I now need to rewire it. It needed a carb rebuild really bad. The fuel bowl under the tank leaks, too. I can't keep fuel in it over night. It runs great and fires up without too much trouble.
The Farmall Super C tractor was made from 1951 to 1954 by International Harvester. It had a 123 cid engine, hydraulic touch control and IH fast hitch availability. There was one Nebraska Tractor test completed on the Farmall Super C in 1951. The total number of tractors produced is approximately 112,006. Here are the serial numbers for the Farmall Super C. Mine is 171306 built in 1953. The serial # is located on the toolbox and on the seat support.
