David, that thought ran through my mind when you said you were going to call him after I sent you the pics. :wink:

Thanks guys. That pic looks better than the pics the PO sent me. A little cleaner wax on the sheet metal does wonders along with the bright winter sun. It looked more like the front wheels before and up close it really does show its age. Appearancewise, it matches up well with the loader. They'll make a good pair.

Original PO's picture:

Looks like you got one from Dean Hinton in Carlisle, KY. That is one nice 140, and you got it from a good, honest ole guy! I just talked to Dean today actually. Really great guy to deal with, and he does have some nice 140s time to time.

The 1976 140 I had that you inquired about looked to be about in the same original condition. Virtually NO play in the steering, NO noise in the transmission (very small, probably normal hum in Reverse) and ran perfect. Everything down to the seat cushions was original on mine (and you know if they've lasted well, then it was taken care of). It actually sold today and went to a new home here locally. I sent the new owner (and a greenhorn to Farmalls) home with a binder full of manuals so hopefully he'll take as good of care or better of it than the P.O. did. I just love those late model 140's. Here is a picture of the '76 I sold today posing for it's Owner's Manual Front Cover Photo Shot.

I see that yours is a 1975 model........makes me think about the 2 '75 models I've got that I need to get to work on!

VERY NICE tractor Denny. I'm glad you found a good one close to home. Best of luck with it, and would love to see pictures of it with the loader mounted.

Very nice Denny! There is a nursery near me that has a few 140's. Another has a load of Cubs. I think 140 was the biggest a local dealer sold. RI is small after all :lol:

I am told when IH announced they were discontinuing the 140, most IH dealers in eastern NC ordered every one they could. Many dealers had rows of them on their lot.

Former IH salesman at the dealer we used to deal with said when the 140 was introduced, his boss ordered 200 at one time!

It was funny hear him tell it. I have it on VHS around here somewhere. It was at the big introduction they did for the 460/560 era tractors. When it came time to take orders, dealer A ordered 2-3 140's, dealer B ordered 1-2 140's, when they got to Mr. Vann, owner of Wallace Motor & Implement Co, he held up two fingers. The zone manager said, "You want two tractors Mr. Vann?" Mr. Vann, said, "H*ll, if I can't order 200, I won't order none!" I'm gonna have to dig my tape out and watch it. He told me how many flatcars (I guess 10 tractors per car, so 20 cars?) they hauled them in on, and the amazing thing was, the number of months (It wasn't many) it took him and the other 2-3 salesmen to move those 140's. This was rural Duplin County in 1959--there were still a LOT of 1-row farms, and there were'nt many trade-ins. He said it wan't unusual in those few months to sell 3-4 tractors. A day.

Definatly, I lived in the wrong decade!

Dan, not sure about Johnny Cash and a Cub, but apparently Elvis had one delivered and returned it for a bigger tractor, a 300U.

The pic posted last isn't showing up for me, but if anyone finds the Johnny Cash picture, please post it because that would be something cool to see and save for my collection.
