I put some hours on a white when they were new. I was driving a tractor for a neighbor to help him out. I think it was a  2 105? I remember liking the cab alot. Both our tractors at that time were open station. He lost it a few years later when he went bankrupt. Thx-Ace

That series White tractors were pretty popular around here. A few four wheel drive models as well. Surprised to see they made a 2-180 .

No, White only made combines in Canada

 on the other hand Massey built the their 4wds in Canada in the 1980s

A lot of Massey Harris combines built in Canada too. Like Cockshutt, another original Canadian company that no longer exists. This model 26 combine dates to about 1949.

Which models and where were they built?. I thought the 4840 was built in Detroit. Or were they made in the combine plant.

the Brantford combine plant built all the combines for North America. probably World wide- they had the capacity to build 60 machines a day. I drive by that plant minimum 4 times a day

I clearly remember them being built in Brantford when MF spunoff into 2 companies. They closed everything on Toronto and built a new office building in downtown Brantford ( a short lifespan called Massey Place) they also produced balers in Brantford in those years. I called a friend who was a union stewart to back me up- he was thinking 4880 or 4900 but wasn't sure of the models and was also on his other phone line so was hurried  I may call back sometime or drop by his place. ( many ex Massey guys have died of old age.) It was 30 years ago Massey Combine Corp went bankrupt and was sold off piece by piece. I was on the Massey property for a short tour the day of the sale in the press shop ........massive! in those days videos were a little harder to make or I would have paid more attention. there are several businesses on that property now including  Gates Rubber, Princess Auto, Tim Hortons. Lowes Building Centre and more. at the time it was considered one of the more modern combine plants

I remember seeing a White 4WD at a fair and I was thinking it said "Made in Canada" on it.

Maybe a component?  The factory muffler on my 766 said "Canada" on it.

Yes, back then IH bought the 66 series mufflers from a company in Woodstock, Ontario. I can't remember the name of the company.

Wait!! Back it up the White tractor ads,

I found this one in a Successful Farming Magazine for 1980, if you look in the lower right hand corner you can see that they compare this 2-135 to the Deere 4440 and IH 1086

Nelson mufflers was another name I recall seeing on tractor mufflers years ago.
