  1. So is this an original that was found....or is he making one
  2. Please explain more....what is going on here....
  3. Here is a link to Navistar’s history page. Talks about the entire company back to the old days.... https://www.navistar.com/navistar/whoweare/heritage
  4. Thank You, I looked up and read Proctor and Gamble and Union Pacific.....very interesting Thank You
  5. These pictures you both posted are from years later. Looks like they just might have decided that international was more recognized then changed their mind. In the late 80’s and early 90’s at least Navistar was on Citifront Plaza. I saw the address on their material. I was in Chicago one time in the mid 90’s and drove down there and found it. It was near the 401 N Michigan Ave headquarters of the old IHC. They moved to Warrenville and the Lisle years later.....
  6. Navistar stock remains the same stock as past International Harvester stock....in the late 80’s (or 90’s) they did a 1 for 10 reverse split....the company had gone from large to probably less then half its size. Navistar had to pay retired IH employees their pensions and this caused a heavy burden on the company....Tenneco did not take the pensions when they bought. if anyone has any old stock certificates of IH I’d love to buy one and frame it.....
  7. Good one .Snap on. I will research and see how old they are.... International Harvester Company eventually as part of the agreement with Tenneco change their name to Navistar International Corporation after the sale of the IH name and farm equipment div. Since that time they’ve Spun some of their business off as referred to above. The holding company which is the company is Navistar International....the engine and buses and defense are all subsidiaries for liability and legal reasons. They have always used International as their truck name, along with Eagle for a period. Navistar was picked because they were going to navigate into the future after the sale of IH farm. And Star was the name of the trucks, Paystar, Loadstar ect. So it was familiar to the customer. i remember the orange triangles and international on the first trucks...as well as the IH on the door handles and hood, until they used up the NOS. I love the pics of Navistar headquarters.....
  8. My question isn’t hard. It’s about original companies, not name changes, not what control share holders have. I I’ve had people tell me that the world bank owns all these corporations and has total say over everything they do. I am not a conspiracy theorist. I’m simply asking provocative questions. International Harvester/Navistar stock was created in 1902. It has never changed since then. I’m not sure the dates on Ford or John Deere or caterpillar on when they were Inc. I found it interesting that’s all. I forgot about Harley being bought back by the Grandson (or some relation) of the original founders....however it can’t be original stock? More likely A new company was created.... Massey Ferguson is owned by Agco...my point....they are not original stock. Caterpillar is still owned and based in USA.

  10. Since Volkswagens bid for Navistar I’ve been thinking about original companies that are still operating under their original stock and ownership. A few I can think of are of course Navistar, and Ford, John Deere and Caterpillar. some other American owned companies but are not original stock like Peterbilt, Kenworth, Chrysler, General Motors, Massey Ferguson. I’m sure there are more but my question is can anyone think of any other original manufacturers that are still operating under their original stock.
  11. Dad bought new 706 gas in 63, new 1460 combine in 78’, new 5288 fwa western in 83’, still have all of them. We put a 282 diesel in the 706 last yr. only reason he didn’t order diesel was because he didn’t want to get another fuel tank on farm.....
  12. Midwest cub offered to rebuild my 16 single cyl. In the winter of 2020....I don’t know but I bet somehow could make a twin rebuild work somehow....
  13. I’d keep it original and find the twin 17 or find parts....Midwest super cub might help... I have a couple of them...like them original
  14. So sad! How many original US owned major manufacturers are still in operation....original being the important word here.....a few I can think of....Navistar, Ford, Deere, Cat.......

  17. 401 N Michigan Ave was the corporate address for IHC for years....that’s why the name. I’m in Wisconsin...
  18. Hey thanks for the info. We had it running.....but haven had time to get back to it....

  21. It’s going to need some work...but it’s home....
