1955 IH Lo Boy

Postby Basskicker » Sat Jul 18, 2020 11:46 am

Does anyone have any resources to purchase McCormick and Lo Boy badges for the hood and side radiator guards?

I thought the Loboys didn't have the McCormick emblems...just the holes.

Hi,
Dale is right, the LoBoys don't have the McCormick name on the hood.
They are not a McCormick Farmall.
The place on the hood for the McCormick name is left blank.

Below is a page from the 1957 Cub operator's manual, with pics of a LoBoy, showing the names on the hood. It looks like yours in your pic, with no McCormick name.

The Cub and Loboy parts manual says they didn't use the McCormick name on the LoBoy also. :)

I wondered about the McCormick badge, I saw one with it on a google pic, it was above the international cub badge.

Some people think that because there are holes in the hood for them that they should be installed, but only the Taller Cubs had them. The same hood was used on both models.
