HCOP picture thread

We had to find a towel for my buddy since we left in a hurry this afternoon. Off to Wally World.

Who did we come across?  It’s Mr IH Gear himself. I took this picture and sent it to him. We found them inside. I will say that you won’t find a more stand up guy.

Forecast for Rantoul says high of 98° today. Add about 238% humidity 😊 and things will be a little sticky. Everyone be careful out there.

What is this one?

Shop Mule I think. Unless it’s custom built.

I wish I was there!! Hopefully the next one. I’ve always thought it would be an awesome show to attend. Thank you for the pictures!

I thought the Shop Mule had different sheet metal.  It does look the correct size for a Shop Mule.  I'm wondering if someone put Farmall A/B sheet metal on one.

That’s why I had put custom built to. After looking at it I realized it does look slightly different cosmetically.

Would be interested to hear the story behind that one, Todd. If you uncover any more information, please share it!

I think that this is the fist incarnation of what would become the 806 transmission. @Drysleeves Mentioned it a while ago.

The first time I ever saw evidence of one was in RP many years ago. It was purported to have been built in 1950 like the one pictured at Rantoul. Would have to go digging through the archives to locate it but I suppose that's a good project for a 98 degree day since the aforementioned archives are in my basement.

@Sledgehammer What is this one?  Too small to be a 4 series and appears to have an A,B,C, sized engine.  W, O or I 2?

That is a shop mule. Some looked like baby tractors and some looked nearly armored.
