I remembered some article about the Cub being given to an IH employee so I asked Lee Grady if someone could dig up the info. One of the work study students found the info for me. We will display it with the tractor at the Convention and then Tom can have it to go with his tractor.
Ken Updike, Guy Fay and I along with some other Cheeseheads are going to help sort through duplicate manuals at the archives on saturday. We are going to auction off some of the manuals at the Winter Convention.
I am glad those of you who do not believe this tractor exists have not read this post.

I expect Dennis would like to post them in the photo archives if the owner is willing. I'd gladly go and take the pictures if someone would buy me the airline tickets. I can't drive that far due to my hip problems.

This is stuff you will never see at a Redpower.
What kind of collectors are you guys that you would worry about your career instead of figuring out how to get to a tractor show!!!
There is more to life than working. LOL Oh yea, I forgot I have to work so I can afford this trctor stuff.
