Black Stripe 1066

Recommended Posts

I just bought a Black Stripe and  didn't know anything about it but the ID tag says 2610178UO and the serial number is 61664. Does anyone know if this is a late model? I got it from my father in law and he was told is was possiblity the last Black Stripe brought into Michigan without a cab, he decided to sell it and I just didn't like the idea of him doing so. My father in law owned it since it was new.

 

Thanks in advance,

Matt

61664 is a late 76 model, last serial number in production is 62048.  I have serial number 62044 on the registry, located in OH.

When I make it back to the shop tomorrow I can get a picture of it. She's a little rough but nothing that can't be fixed.

Just a caution about the last produced numbers for the 66 series. I know that 62048 is the last 1066 number in the IH records and is quoted in Ken Updike's little book. However, 34053 is the equivalent last number given in Ken's book for the 966. But I saw a 966 tractor sold at an internet auction in Wisconsin about 5 years ago with the serial tag photographed and it was 34060. So don't take the IH records numbers as gospel. They are more or less in the ball park but in some cases there are a few more that were produced and above the given last number. There is a thread on this forum about a similar situation with the 3488 Hydro tractor where tractors having a higher number than the number given in the records exist. I have a 966 with the serial number 33973 and it was built in July 1976 just before summer shutdown. It arrived at my local dealer on about July 28, 1976 and the trucker picked it up around July 25, 1976 when the plant was on summer shutdown. I found that out by talking to the trucker as he was unloading it. I intended to buy it that summer but another fellow was quicker pulling his money out than I was. I ended up buying it two years later when he traded it in for an air conditioned cab equipped 986. This tractor is still in my shed almost 40 years later.

I know others have proven higher numbers than production records, but I had to start somewhere, so I’m using the production numbers for reference of year splits, and an ending point.  I have yet to see anything past 62048, but maybe it will happen.  Time will tell.  

Bill, your tractors are sharp!! That open station has me drooling!!!

We run red blue and a yellow one so we are pretty color blind also, no green though I think my dad would roll over in his grave if that happened!

That tractor is not that bad, looks like it didn’t sit undercover much, but you have something good to work with, by the looks of it!!

Those wheels tell me it is a real late model, it will have all the '86 series changes.

 

Nice original, good honest tractor.

It's pretty straight, my father in law has a fair amount of parts to be put back on it.  It seemed to run well, I drove it 25 miles home. I was little when we sold our 826 so I'm not that familiar with the 70's Internatonal's.
