New owner 1948 orchard cub

Postby Lowrollerjr » Mon Dec 23, 2013 9:50 pm

I have recently acquired a 1948 farmall cub. It only has two pedals,one brake pedal and a clutch pedal. Also it has an extremely narrow rear end I was told that it could possibly be in Orchard cub. The rear is much more narrow than pictures of the cubs I have seen online. I don't find a lot of information about them online any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Ok.. I got two up.. They were a pain cause I had to reduce the size . Any info at all is welcome. The tractor is in very good shape. I know the family who owned at they parked it about 15 years ago. The motor turns over and everything is there that I can see except a battery. Gonna try to start in in the next week or two when I get time.

Make sure you prime the oil pump before starting since it has been parked that long. You sure don't want to damage the engine on that one.

That's a nice looking little Cub you got there.

I think it really depends on who you mean by "THEY". My understanding is that this type modification would have been done by an after market supplier, a local machine shop, or sometimes by the owner themselves, not by IH. Unless it was a French Cub then I don't know if IH made the Vineyard Cub or that was a modification by someone else. Regardless, it's a very neat tractor and will draw lots of attention anywhere it is. Great find! :{_}:

I have also been told that it is a vineyard cub.All I know is that it is really cool. If the modifications were made somewhere other than the factory you wouldn't be able to tell because it looks like a factory job. Thank you all for your quick responses. I will keep you posted on my progress. I think I scored for $500.00
