  1. I used to do this. Became trained not to grab anything really fragile. Took best care I could of dads stuff! Notice the Gleaners, those were dad’s and uncles. You can see the 1456 I mentioned above to the right of the 1206.
  2. I guess to show my 756 like I talked about above. I probably got the hat around the 2001-2002 timeframe too.
  3. Dad has several of his farm toys from when he was a kid. One bring the 10 drill. Missing a few parts tho. There is a picture of Christmas Day 1971 at his grandparents house and under the tree was a new 1/16th IH 1456 with cab. I think there was also a red 1/32nd scale tractor too. Dad was about a year and a half old. Christmas Day 2001 I was nine months old and got a 1/16th IH 756 Custom with Hiniker Cab. We both still have these tractors today. His has been restored, mine is original. I was always one for some reason to not play hard with my toys.
  4. Even looking back in ads today I catch myself looking in awe at a N7 and 12 row head. The bushel capacity made it the largest combine of the time being a Class VII.
  5. When Gleaner came out with the N7 in 1979 did they come right out with the 12 row corn head too? When would’ve the 8820 had a 12 row?
  6. There are a good amount of 86 series tractors in my area but I don’t know how many are 1586’s. I did see this one a couple years ago. Then I’ve got one of my own. 😀
  7. Flipping through my IH Farm Equipment Reference Catalog today and I found this one page December 1968 sheet on 700 series corn heads for the 8 & 915’s. Seems there was talk on here about corn heads so thought I’d post this.
  8. Sounds like the perfect environment for me…..
  9. Great photos! Looks like it was a great time!
  10. I got this 1970 brochure back in March. It is a neat one to have.
  11. Well I got home for break and I went ahead and pictured all combine pages for the summer/fall buyers guides. Hope you all can blow these up to read them. The first time a 15 series shows up was in 1968 which is the 315. 1969 1970 815 has a V304 128 hp gas engine, V345 144hp gas or LP engine, and a D407 120hp 6 straight six diesel. 915 has a V345 144 hp gas or LP engine, V392 158 HP gas or D407 120 hp straight six diesel. 1971 1972 1973
  12. Talking about tall stubble made me think of these photos, probably from 1972. Stubble doesn’t look all that tall which I’m sure is why the trucks are in the field. This is great-grandpas Gleaner F and IH A-160. I think the other truck is a mid 40’s Chevy by the looks of it. I’m gonna assume all these had gas engines? This is winter wheat planted with IH 150’s.
  13. I know nothing about this photo. Just took it from FB because I thought it was neat. 915 and 883 8 row corn head. 30 inch spacing?
  14. Is that why the 914 and 715 were made up until like 1979? I assumed it was because IH didn’t have the 1420 and 1482 ready by 1977-78. If the 914 and 715’s were that popular that makes more sense.
  15. When I get home from college here in the near future I have a 1970 brochure of the 8 and 915’s and all summer fall guides from 69-73 that those combines are in. I can make a dedicated thread….. or post them here in one shot. First is also from 1972. It’s interesting that all IH Summer/Fall guides have a combine on them. Guess just like Spring guides had a tractor on the front, it was seasonal.
