Hey Boss... Rarest Cub. Only one made

Postby RUSSALL » Wed Nov 28, 2012 9:11 pm

I believe I have the rarest Cub ever made. It is a 1979 International Cub. It is 12 volt, long stripe
and has a red body with a white hood. There is only one I know to exist. The serial number is too
small to read.
There is a consensus among local Cubbers that near the end of production, any and all available parts
were used to complete orders to dealers.
As you can see this Cub is still working and keeping the Cub heritage alive.

Does it have a trimmed dash? I think there was one left after the run in 1948.
It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.

Yes Bill, it does have a trimmed dash. Oddly there are no holes in the floor pan.
Super rare.

I don't think there were any holes left at the end of production so they didn't put them on the last Cub.

I see that they missed the holes in the hood too, to oil the generator OOPS Alternators don't need oil. :big smirk:
