Super M purchased

Postby mikes5785 » Mon Sep 04, 2017 1:29 am

We purchased a Super M yesterday, I understand Super M's were manufactured in Louisville KY (6 digit serial numbers) and another location that had 5 digit serial numbers, Where were these Super M's made?

Thanks

I don't know where they were made but I liked the only one I ever drove. Even if you lugged the engine down it didn't give up and would recover. The only problem was wheel spin. They need more tire than what they came on. 12-38's I think. Vern

Most were made at the Farmall Plant in Rock Island, IL. The had such high demand that some were assembled in Louisville in 1953-54. Louisville assembled Super Ms had a L in front of the serial number.
