  1. Only a marketing question : IHC is a worldwide organization, the company owns some brands & trade marks, and use them differently in the different countries where it exports or build directely through its subsidiaries.For American Domestic market, the real risk of infrigement of the anti-trust law in the twenties drove IH to drop the distinct networks Mac Cormick and Deering, in order to use from now on an unique composed Brand (mc+D) In France, the two brands were sold separatly until 1947 ,using also the Brand Osborne and CIMA (for the ihc engines.Another example : All the tractors IH imported in Denmark brought the "Farmall" name typically, until the end of the fifties.What was the reason why ? "Farmall" name was particularly well known in this country, as Mac Cormick in France, the transition toward international brand was a very slow process....the Brand Marketing is a science, inspired by the customers habits....

Made both in France and Germany - The German affiliate exported some tractors to Canada - The availability of Parts is correct for the engine - the transmission is very reliable but in case onf something should happen, it is not easy to purchase new parts - except in salvage fields in France, Germany.

  9. Off topic : i am seriously interested to visit the Frank Bartlow dealership so i have ask without success if the building was specially opened during the RPRU ( and a day before it) in order to allow me, a pilgrim from France, to discover this sanctuary without tour planned from the RPRU, this visit is really important for me, because my parent's dealership, in France, followed most of the Raymond Loewy worldwide dealership prescriptions .Let me know if you have informations.
