    Somehow I got lost and wandered onto this site, which I thought might be of interest to others. I've copied to this thread a few pictures borrowed from the site, just as some added enticement for members to check it out. Towards the bottom of the first page is a list of states you can click to see some dealers that were in that area; try your own state to see if any still exist.


    Welcome to International Harvester Dealers of the Past. Created by merger in 1902, the International Harvester Company grew to become one of the largest industrial corporations in the United States. There was hardly a rural hamlet or town that didn't have an IH dealer. Now, the vast majority of these dealers are long gone; many faded into history with hardly a mention. The purpose of this site is to identify and catalog as many of these dealers as possible.
    Given the number of dealers that came and went over time, this is a work in progress and always will be.
    Have info on a dealer of the past? Spot a mistake or typo? Want to tell me this a pointless and futile waste of time!? Send comments my way at:

    This was the one in my home town. Been gone for a long long time. There is still a CaseIH called Norfolk Tractor.

    No listing for Moncton, NB where mine was originally from, but I know you could order IH's through Chrysler dealers too I believe.

    It seems the one in Cambridge, MD is now a True Value. Hey at least it's still red.
