IH Dealers of the past

Postby Jason (IL) » Sat Aug 03, 2013 9:56 pm

I found this site and thought I would share it.

I have been doing some research into my grandpa's old dealership and came across it. I know it was brought up a while ago by someone or this could even be the same.

I see they do not have Sparks Equipment we had here in Potosi, MO. Probably just as well, he put himself out of business due to his unscrupulous business dealings.

Also missing a pylon truck dealership and tractor dealership in Salisbury, NC, Concord Truck and Tractor became Moeller Truck and Tractor. Kannapolis had a Cadet dealership, and finally, I don't remember Landis ever selling anything IH. I'll have to check that.

I don't think some of the dealers listed for NC weren't really full-fledged dealers. At least not selling tractors/trucks. They must have been hardware/feed stores that maybe sold parts or something? I know for example there was no IH dealer in Burgaw or Warsaw, NC. They would most likely have been served by Wallace Motor & Implement Co. in Wallace.

Remember, 253685 was delivered to a hardware store. Don't know if it went through Carolina Tractor or not.
