We have a B250 with what I think says B22515 on the serial number tag, is that number 515 or 22515 overall? Don't have a book with the year numbers. Believe it is a 1957, although we got it in 1958.


Here is a list of serial numbers for the B-250 farm tractor.
The B-250 Industrial had seperate serial numbering.

The B-250 was built in Britain and mainly sold In Britain and other British Commonwealth countries such as Canada and Australia etc. :)

B-250 1956 #501 to 3955

1957 #3936 to 16026

1958 #16027 to 23467

1959 #23468 to 26897

1960 #26898 to 29063

1961 #29064 to 30260

Regards from Michael H.

Blackstripe7:

It would be appreciated if you could get pictures of the serial number tags on these two Farmall 656 tractors, If they really are 501 and 502 they are preproduction test tractors just like the 1206 discussed a while back on this forum. There was an article way back in Red Power Magazine about the test
program for these tractors in 1964.

My brother and I have #501 806. My father passed 5 years ago and left us a pole barn full of beauties. We also have #1049. I guess that's also a bit on the low side. I'm sure a bunch of guys on the forum could fill you in on the #501 better than I. Kate

We have a Mccormick Super W-6 # 507. paid a grand for it about 6 yrs ago, its a nice original. they must have had extra std grills left, because they filled in the holes for the mccormick wing on the front, and added holes for te IH emblem in the center


Great piece of history!
B)It looks all true with the "tub" frame etc.
Great to see this tractor, probably the oldest surviving SUPER W-6!
Regards from Michael H.


Not mine but resides 2 miles down the road from me. McCormick Deering WD40 serial # 503. Belongs to Eric Best and was restored to 100% factory original by Wendell Kelch.


Great piece of IHC history! :)
The WD-40 was probably one of IH's most important tractors as it introduced diesel powered farm tractors to the world on a commercial scale. Wendell Keich is that man who has done a brilliant job restoring some old pre-WW1 IHC tractors too.

Thanks Michael! its a neat tractor, never been repainted. we got it from an old fixer uper joecky guy. he kinda knew it was special but didn't care a hole lot. we were excited becaue we know it would likely be our only tractor in the 500's we do have a SW4 bones parts tractor #6xx i think.
Wendell did a good job on on Erics wd-40 its just too bad he didnt paint it the proper dark dark grey. or blue black grey as MBcat called it

Kate, I had the pleasure of meeting and talking with your father Richard for a few minutes at the 2006 RPRU in Mansfield, OH. He was driving around his newly completed 544 Farmall Gold Demo a bit, as his health would permit. I'll always treasure that meeting. And I think its safe to say that Bermuda Ken could tell us a lot about 806 #501 as well.

As for low serial numbers around here, 886 #8602 (second one) resides at Dad's. Mostly original, and in pretty decent shape. The A/C still works well enough to keep you out of the cloud of dust off the round baler.
I bleed 2150 Red!

My stuff: 706, 574, H, 782CC, 125CC, M48S CC
Family stuff: 886, 544, 330, 230, Cub, 1641CC, 106CC, 129CC, 1450CC

I have a 1952 Super M #1038.

As the story goes it was bought new by penn state university, used a littlle then later in either 52 or 53 my grandfather bought it and its been in the family ever since. This was one of the first tractors from horse farming way back then. In 1988 I bought it from my grandfather and make every effort to restore it but come up short $$$$. Sometime either in the mid 50's or in the 70's (conflicting stories from my family) the head cracked after filling silo so it got a new, not rebuilt IH head and do not think its been overhauled until I did it. The crank bearings are still standard. This tractor was the workhorse on the farm till the 460 came along then it still got more use than the 460. The super M spent most days as I knew it as a hay rake tractor, road tractor, and the grinder mixer tractor on our 10 or so farms. It was the most popular among the super H, 460, 544, 574, The rest are all gone as pap solld out over the years I just hope I can get this painted while he is still around to see! As of now I had the hoods repaired and primered, engine overhauled, just going to send the power steering pump away to get rebuilt and I should be ready for paint.

Hi guys,cool topic,great to hear of some of this neat stuff.
My father owns Super BW6 # 632. British built,Gas,only 275 made.Also know the whereabouts of # 627 along with BT6 crawler # 511.

Dad also owns Australian built Scout 80 # 501 ,first one built,right hand drive,4x4,152 4cyl,built Feb 1962.

Michael--that sure is a nice scout--being that your father bought it makes it special. Would you happen to have the line setting ticket for it? If you do could you post it so we could see it? It would be interesting to see the difference in an Australian built scout and a US built scout. Thanks in advance.
