Tue Feb 22, 2005 8:36 pm

Jim, I found a Farmall C for sale in our local trader paper, Althought I haven't seen the tractor yet. I spoken to the owner on the phone a nice enought fellow (even thought he has those pesky green tractors) he didn't know the year of the tractor but gave me the serial #FC149753 According to the Originality guide Farmall letter series tractors by Guy Fay & Andy Kraushaar on page 127 that serail no. appears to be a 1952 Farmall Super C could you shed some light on this before I get my hopes up for an Super C with an wide front end. Thanks Dave F.

According to Guy's Ih tractor Data book, that would be a 1952 Super C.

Changeover from C to Super C was in '51 at serial 100,001. The main differences were a C-123 engine in place of the C-113 (although a few Cs had 123) and disk brakes in place of drum. They had an improved cooling system (taller radiator, water pump standard).
