Tractors by "Date" 1206

Recommended Posts

Awhile back we discussed on here that a great topic idea would be to post pictures of your equipment that correspond to today's date.  So, let's see pictures of your pride and joy.  Working, playing, restored or in work clothes. I will start with my 1966 Farmall 1206.

Oh my gosh! I had completely forgotten about posting this!!

Anyways this first photo I have posted before of my great-grandfathers 1206 wheatland he bought in July 1967 for $7,021.That is my great uncle on the seat and my grandpa on the fender. This tractor is a true wheatland therefore it had no TA, pto, or 3pt hitch

This next one was taken in Nov.1969 a couple of years later it would of had a Egging on it.

This tractor is located about 45 minutes away from me. My great uncle (that was in the first picture) found the guy that currently owns it. Hopefully he gets it some day. He also has a 1206 (that is a standard with TA and pto) and to be honest the 1206 is one of my favorite tractors built by IH 

Great pics of other 12’s that are out there they are getting to be quite the collectibles!

Very Nice Pictures,   In the top Photo, with your Great uncle & Grandpa,  are those "Factory Weights' Bolted the rear castings??   We have some  " PAPA " weights that look very similar to yours,  our weights were cast in Texas ,  My son "Cooter" Has that style of weights bolted to his "806"  Not as thick as the weights pictured.  Thanks for sharing your pictures.     Jim Droscha

I’ll have to look you up next time I get down there. We were there in July of 2017 and spent half the afternoon wandering around the yard. My wife asked the kids a couple weeks ago where they wanted to go for a couple day trip over Christmas vacation and my three oldest boys (17, 16, & 11) immediately responded “Colfax!”

Jim, 

To answer your question as my great uncle said, they were bolted to the wheel castings but the 1206 was a tractor that had enough power that most of the original wheel castings had to be replaced with wedge lock castings because the clamp bolts weren't good enough. In the second pic you can see that the duals are shorter they are 34 inch while the tractor had 38 inch tires and after a couple years 38 inch duals were put on.

 A reason that great grandpas 1206 was only a little over $7000 was because an IH 650 tractor and a model 55 JD combine were traded in.  

With the other 1206 standard that I mentioned earlier that my great uncle currently owns only has pto no ta..... sorry my mistake on that. Also that tractor has the same rear weights as great grandpas 12  but the weights are on both sides inside and outside of his standard 1206 they came from Kansas.
