  1. IH Produces its 5 Millionth Tractor On February 1, 1974, at 9 a. m., International Harvester made history, producing its 5 millionth tractor. When this historic tractor, Serial‪#‎2610172U035153‬, was produced at International Harvester's Farmall Plant in Rock Island, Illinois on February 1, 1974, IH became the first manufacturer to claim the production of 5,000,000 tractors. The orginial press release photo caption reads: "In special ceremonies at International Harvester's Farmall Plant, Rock Island, IL, Stanley F. Lancaster, vice president, marketing, Agricultural/Industrial Equipment Division, Chicago, and local beauty, Valerie Robb, 22, hail production of the company's record 5,000,000th Tractor on Friday, February 1. IH is the first tractor to claim this distinction and marked the event with an assembly line commemorative celebration. The tractor came equipped with nearly every option IH offered along with a special paint scheme, chrome exhaust, grill and rims. The following two years, the historic tractor was featured at fairs, conventions, and shows across the United States. On September 26, 1976, this tractor was offered at auction to all International Harvester [iH] dealers attending a new series 86 Tractor announcement in Chicago. Of 177 entries, the winning bid of $40,086.86 was submitted by the Montana IH Dealer group. The keys to the tractor were presented to these dealers on November 5, 1976. It was immediately announced that the proceeds from the auction would be used to establish a Research Program under the direction of Montana State University for a study to further improve tractor operating efficiencies. The Montana IH Dealer group at that time consisted of thirteen implement dealers across the state of Montana. In the years following, the tractor was rotated around the state for showing by IH dealers. By the early 1990s, only three of the Montana dealers remained in business. These dealers, the Musick Implement Company of Denton, the Big Sky Equipment Company of Conrad, and the Kamp Implement Company of Belgrade, decided to present the 5,000,000th Tractor to the new Museum of the Northern Great Plains in Fort Benton. This museum is designated by the Montana State Legislature as the official "Montana Agricultural Museum." On the 15th of June 1995, the tractor arrived in Fort Benton, where it remains today on display at the Museum of the Northern Great Plains. This historically significant tractor is an important part of agricultural history, not only in Montana but also across the United States. Photo and information credits to , WHS and Ft Benton

  8. The IH Gold Demonstrator Tractor program was started in mid 1970's when IH announced the Golden Demonstrator tractor program to its dealers. These Tractors were painted a dull Golden color (most likely paint color was taken from IH's Truck Division) to show the features of the NEW ! IH tractor lineup . One of the reasons for the Gold color really was to promote the Hydrostatic drive tractors. The Hood ,and Fenders were painted in the Gold color and the rest of the tractor was IH Red. These Tractors also had a decal on the side of the hood that read "DEMONSTRATOR" So for all you Goldie's out there Post your pictures of Your tractor or implement and tell us a little story about it . Picture from Internet . .. Not my Photo
