McCormick Farmall Cub Tractor History
The Farmall Cub was the smallest tractor in the IH line. Originally introduced in 1947, the Cub remained in the line until 1964. Versions of the Cub remained in production for over 28 years. This might might was ideal for the 40 acre farms. At least 17 different implements were designed for the Cub. This tractor changed very little in its many years of production and can be seen on farms today pulling its fair share of jobs.

McCormick Farmall Cub Tractor 1959-1963
The smallest tractor in the IH line, the Farmall Cub, changed little in functional design from its introduction in 1947 through it's final year of production in 1964. The most notable changes occured in the hood and grille design. In 1959, the hood and grille were changed again to keep this ever popular and reliable little tractor dressed in the current style of the rest of the IH line.
International Cub Tractor 1964-1976 HISTORY
From its introduction in 1947, the Farmall Cub retained a distinctive shape and color. Dramatically, in 1964 IH made major design changes to the hood and grille as well as color. The 'Cub' went from IH Red to Federal Yellow and White. The new yellow and white look made this 'Cub' one of the more easily recognized of the 'Cub' series.
International Cub Tractor 1976-1979 HISTORY
From its introduction in 1947, the Farmall Cub retained a distinctive shape and color. Dramatically, in 1964 IH made major design changes to the hood and grille as well as color. The 'Cub' went from IH Red to Federal Yellow and White. In 1976 the 'Cub' returned to the famous IH Red color. Although this claim is disputed by some, the avid collector can still find this final version of the International Cub Tractor.
The traditional History Panel was deleted by Ertl for this model and the logo also changed to Ertl Britains. To identify the contents Ertly reformatted the History Panel to the Original Model Specifications panel and relocated it from the side panel to the rear panel.
