Wow, what a find Eason. Do you know the story behind why it's not being used? I have often wondered if there would be a possibility of finding a "NOS" tractor in storage anywhere. I guess I just got my answer.

Back in the early 80's, the local IH dealer had a going out of business auction and one of the things they pulled out of storage was a brand new hay loader like the Amish use today still in the crate!
Git-R-Done with a 2 way plow, one way plows are for show, parades, and plow days.

IH Equipment; '68 656D, 642 4 Bottom Rollover Plow, 535 3 Bottom Semi-mounted Plow, 540 4 Bottom Semi-mounted Plow, 12' 370 Disc, 18' 470 Disc, 18' 45 Field Cultivator, and 12' 2 Section Spike Tooth Harrow. Also lots of IH Toy Tractors.

Also have a black sheep; an AC 7045 and it stays in the shed.

That's quite a find Eason. Who's the owner and what's the story on it never getting used?

I imagine that's one of those deals where they bought the tractor because they wern't making them anymore. I'm suprised the seat looks as good as it does. My guess it was bought new around 1979-1981........Cool find!!
I should have bought a dozen 140's and three or five Mexican Taco 986 ($14500.00) & 1086's ($17000.00). The 140's with cultivators were going for $7900.00 in June of 1981, that's when we sold the last one stored in the warehouse (Jack Dawes bought the last one). I believe the last 140's were built in 1979...I think.

Eason is that at Bradshers? If not he most likely sold it, that guy knows his IH stuff and we deal with him for things from time to time.

RedPowerNC you are right it's at Bradsher Bros. They bought 2 from a dealer in Ga in 1981. C and D IH in Burlington bought and sold the other one. I asked about the steering wheel and they said both of them had that type of wheel from the factory. That's why I took the piture of the center cap. Mr. Bradsher stated that thy had been offered $20,000 for the tractor and he told the guy "In 2 months the money would be gone and I wouldn't have my tractor" I'll keep my tractor and you keep your money. He stated the tractor won't leave the farm till after he's buried.

Our 140 has that center cap, ours doesn't look brand new of course, but i think ours is a 1979 model. My uncle bought it and had to have the dealer locate it in SC because there were no new ones on a dealer lot here in NC.

Needs a bath and that thing would look brand new. He's right about the $20,000 being gone fast too. I got into that with the Massey 98 we had. I could have sold it for $6-7,000 and that money would just dissapear or I could trade it for another tractor.

I still have the tractor we traded it for.

What a find. A friend of mine bought a "new" VAC Case at an auction, there were a couple of other tractors of other brands at that auction that were also brand new and never used of the same vintage as the VAC Case. Some bachelor had bought them between WW2 and the Korean War, he was afraid the Korean war was going to escalate to the point of there being no more new machinery for sale just like there was during WW2, so he was stocking up. All the tractors were stored inside their entire life, and the tires even were like new, not weather damaged at all.
