Jason Curry IDs Retired Workhorses I as IH Farmall H or M

Writer's Uncle, the late Russell Holmes, ran the International Harvester dealership in Columbia, KY, for many years

Jason Curry writes:
This is an International Harvester Farmall H or M. They were produced from 1939 to around 1953. I do believe this is an H as I have one that is still in use, but a close-up would confirm. They built the Super H and Super M a couple more years after the H and M, then I believe they went to the number series. It looks as if this one may have been set up with a front end loader as there are some brackets. Although they are outdated for the most part today, they were the work horses of many Adair County farms. My great-uncle, Russell Holmes, ran the International dealership in Columbia many years ago. --Jason Curry
