Ralph: Thanks for the 52 Olds picture. That is a 98 model. We had the Super 88 with a 4 barrel Rochester carburettor. The old 303 ci engine developed 160 HP and could it ever fly down the road. Great for passing Volkswagens. Just leave them in a cloud of dust.

I can just imagine George. I have a 403 Olds engine in my GMC pickup with the Rochester quadrajet and it moves right out and produces most satisfying sounds as air rushes down those big secondarys and exhaust out the dual glass packs.

Ray, very nice tractor ad.

And 73IH810 that is a fine wartime ad for the IH crawler tractor. I don't have anything like that in my collection of ads.

I do have this WWII ad for GM diesel engines. I am not sure but guessing that is an AC crawler tractor in the ad. I think they ran GM diesel engines.

Not a Loadstar but still IH

Ray

Ray, that is a nice ad for a rare truck. The 150 or 1500 size was never as numerous as the bigger 160 or 1600 series. I have that same ad on the back of the 1963 buyers guide. Nice art work on it.

I like the art work on this 1950 Studebaker ad too. Notice they had no visible running boards unlike the other truck lines.

Just discovered this thread, I'm going to have to search for product guide my dad has from I think 1971. If I remember right it has a 656 with the rod style grill on the cover.

Thats great. We can always use a little more variety on this old ad thread.

This is just another car ad, although fairly unique, showing some of GM's top of the line models for 1953. I have had this ad for years. Picture quality could be a little better.

That is a neat old GM automobile ad, Ralph. In 1953, I sat inside the one and only Corvette received by Cooley Chevrolet at Lewistown, Montana. White with red interior and dual carburetors on that 6-cylinder engine. An old retired couple eventually bought it and putted around town with it in the summertime, with the top down. It had to have carbon coming "out its ears?" Gary ;)

Here's a few pages from the product guide I mentioned earlier. I guess I was off on the details a little being that its from '70 not '71 and the tractor is a 1456. It had been a while since i had seen it until today.

Its always good to see that some of those old buyers guides survived. I have a couple from the early sixties. This little IH 93 combine is from the 1964 buyers guide. Funny how the small photo shows steering wheel control while the larger pic shows no steering wheel, just levers for steering.

That's an interesting ad with the variation! Was down at one of the local used equipment lots and seen a 91 set up with the levers like that 93.

I'll have to check my 63 buyers guide to see if they show the same steering arrangement.

I think I might have posted this one before but I don't seem to get many color ads on here so thought I might bring this one back for a replay. These were two big combines back in 64.

Ralph, We have a couple feet of snow and it was -14, I think, when I got up, and with no hot water. They got the heater working again. I need to go to Silver Creek to work on snow blower, but wanted to post the picture of my old IH 403 Combine when it was still pretty new, in the 1960s. Gary ;)

Too bad they didn't have one of these "Fabcabs" for your 403 Gary. Made of fibreglass and custom fitting for all tractors. Wonder if they made one in red? This is from a 1968 Nu-Way catalogue.

Looks like the cab is mounted on a JD 5020 in the pic. There was about a million 5020s around back in the day and maybe about half million now :) and yet I've never seen one with a cab like that.

I have a neighbor with one of those. Except his is a "pea" special or something like that. It has a tine cylinder. Looks similar to a baler pickup. I need to get a pic of it next time I see it.

The closest I have seen to that little IH combine is a 303 that a local guy owns.

And you are right on that Fabcab. I have never seen or heard of one before til that ad turned up in the NuWay catalogue from 1968.

Now I might be making a big subject change here but I happened to find this great ad in an old Star Weekly magazine from 1951. I was always an old Ford enthusiast but I'm liking these old Chev and Pontiacs more all the time. I've got a split exhaust manifold to fit that stovebolt six engine if I ever get my hands on one of these cars.

I had one of those. You could just put it in drive and go alright, but you were better off to put it in 1st and then shift it to drive after you got up to speed. It wasn't long before GM made the powerglide so it would start in low and shift to drive by itself. Much better. I think mine was a '51, but it may have been a '50 titled as a '51.

Ron, Pontiac offered a choice at the time of the power glide or the dual range hydramatic. One of the first cars I got to drive was a 52 Pontiac coupe with powerglide, and of course the flathead six under the hood. I didn't think too much about it at the time but that car would be a real prize to have today. I don't even have a picture of it.

Ralph,

I don't have much for ads anymore. This ad was the newspaper for central Montana when Grandpa Jäger went there in May of 1881. This is an Mineral Argus 1884 McCormick ad for Chas. Lehman at UItica and Cottonwood, Montana Territory. Grandma and Grandpa got married in 1884. Grandpa had a McCormick mowing machine. He later had Deering binders, so I'm not sure where the got them?

Gary ;)

This picture was taken in 1884, cropped out of their wedding.

Well Gary, I guess you win the prize for the oldest ad yet with your 1881 binder ad. I don't think I have anything older than 1906 or thereabouts.

This Lion Rope ad is not much related to McCormick binders but I have been meaning to post it for a while. Kind of neat the way they used a cartoon format to advertise the virtues of Lion brand rope. I neglected to date this ad but I believe it is from about 1950.

And then Chevrolet came with the Turboglide in 1958, almost going back to the first Powerglide Ron described! A friend had a 1958 Impala with tri-power and a Turboglide. It almost reminded me of a 1947 Buick taking off. Sort of like flushing a toilet for sound. Gary ;)

Gary,

A friend of mine has a '58 Impala 348, 3 deuces, originally a Turboglide. Fortunately, for driving purposes, the Turboglide is gone. It has a Turbo Hydramatic in its place. 3 speeds, but a much better transmission. Those old Buicks, I think the transmission was called a Hydramatic, were called a slushbox around these parts. You described it well.

dynaflow, or some spelling like it was what I remember in a 56/58 Buick as I had a 56 hard top special ( three port hole on finders) Ron. The hydros were in the olds, Pontiac, Cad etc. ( I think)
