Snapped a few shots of some really cool tractors while visiting La. last weekend and wanted to share.
This is the first time I'd seen high crop tractors since I'm from the mountain state...
Hope you enjoy.

A really sharp 8N Ford with a flat head V8 engine

This is one that really looked sharp. The owner picked this one up to install a large block V8 for track pulling but after looking a little bit he found it to be the last Super M to roll off the line so it was kept complete.

Question. I understand the 'smaller' tractors being 'high crop' for use in crop cultivation; but, what was a high crop M used for? Or, was it just a curiosity? Thanks, NJDale PS - I'll bet that the V8 Ford N was a 'Fun' tractor to drive around the farm !!!

Yogie, Next time you get that far west, you should add on a few more days and come visit in Colorado. That way we can have a serious discussion about what to call a mountain state. I'd need to dig a hole 100' down to be at the same elevation as Spruce Knob, your highest point at 4863', and I'm on the plains. :D

I've always wondered that myself... but the reason why is because the state is entirely encompassed by the Appalachian Mountains. (At least that's what my WV history teacher told me way back when) I've always thought it was funny that WV doesn't have any elevation over 1 mile, but VA, NC, TN.... all those do. At least we aren't officially called the "welfare state".... :)

Love the hi-crop Cub's! There is one, still used, less than a mile from my house! :D

The other tractor is actually a Super AV. There were two or three of those in my neighborhood as late as the '80s. Had a chance to buy one bu passed....how dumb was that!

thanks for the pics!

Real nice pictures, Yogie !

When I look at these old red tractors all I can say is it's remarkable that they're still out on the farms working, in many cases over 60 years. And if we continue to maintain them, they are going to keep working for a long time. Quite a testament to the manufacturer.
