Question on '57 Lo-Boy Stainless Emblems

Postby Bill Hudson » Thu Apr 25, 2013 12:24 pm

A fellow close by called and asked what were the correct hood stainless emblems for a '57 Lo-Boy. If memory serves me correct, which is not the case all to often, there was a change from Farmall to International somewhere near that time. Anyway, he needs to know what the correct emblems are. He and I both did searches on the internet and I on the forum, we did not come up with a definitive answer. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

Bill, all the Loboys had International emblems and the FCubs had Farmall emblems in that era. The Cub also had a smaller "McCormick " emblem above the Farmall emblem while the Loboy left those two holes open.
It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.

Bill,
Barnyard is correct. Here are some photos of the 1957 International Cub LoBoy that I owned for a short time.

Before:

After: (sold the tractor and the new owner sent me this photo after restoring)

I bought a set of the stainless International cub emblems from Steiner's and they were excellent.
