This image is from the Wisconsin historical society. I think the image has been reversed, The IH logo on the 5488 is on the wrong side. :D

Boy did that crowd at Case shoot themselves in the foot throwing out all the tooling and development costs for the Super Seventy series. Not to mention the completed tractors and parts that went into the trash bin. I think that the concept would be the standard four wheel drive platform today if the series would have gone on. It was almost like they tried to destroy everything they could not try to take credit for themselves. Sort of like "cut your nose off to spite your face " sort of thing.

When I worked on Fendt machines I always believed that the TRISIX was in some ways inspired by the 2+2.
