Her Dad has a really nice 4786 and two other Panthers he bought about ten years ago for the sole purpose of doing excavating work so they all have a pan to go behind them and they probably havent run nothing for five years or better. He bought the 1980 IH 4786 back in 1999 I think for $13,000 at a auction in Illinois where it was only a ag tractor. The 4786 has Michelin radials and Id almost bet they are the ones that come on it new back in "80". Ive been wanting to take it to my house and give it a good cleaning and Im only about a mile from the shed it stays in, its never sat outside except on the job site so its still in good looking shape

My family owned a International Harvester farm machinery dealership in south central Kentucky called Hancock Tractor Sales from 1975 to 1984 and now days I collect 1/16th and 1/64th scale tractors and machinery. Ive done two tours of combat in Iraq as a infantryman with the U.S. Army. I currently retired from the U.S. Army and the Kentucky National Guard

Hydro - The 4786 most likely had B.F.Goodrich radials from the factory, which those look like. Michelin hadn't bought BFG out back in '80 yet.

I agree, get the old girl out and clean her up. Sharp looking original condition tractor!

Hang onto that GF... Perfect Situation to be in if you ever inherited them...

Her - "You should get rid of your old junk tractors"
You - "Well, those 3 were your Dad's, they mean alot to me"
Her - "Oh your right...we should build a new garage for them"
You - "Good idea"

Of course this all makes sense in my fantasy land...ROFL!
My Wife's family bleeds green...I could buy ANYTHING Green and take it home with zero questions....I better have a good reason to buy something without Yellow rims. I been searching for a Magnum pedal tractor to fix up...truth be told, I'm an equal opportunity tractor lover...when the wife learnt of this she quickly gave me the 20 questions thing and the "Do we really need another one" line...last night I showed up home with an 8310 I found cheap locally and got the "Oh he's gonna love it" line.. :unsure: gotta love em. Damn good thing they smell good and have smooth legs.

Here is another pic of the 4786 and its going to stay in her family for a long time to come and your right Dr.Evil on the tires they are B.F. Goodrich and thats all Harvester put on there tractors when radials first came out in the late 70s or at least thats all that we ever got on machinery from the factory
