I wonder how popular David Browns were in the U.S. before Case got ahold of them.

I would see the David Brown tractor ads in the Country Guide magazine in the late 1960s but never saw an actual tractor until Case started selling them as part of their line in 1974. Of course we didn't have any David Brown dealers around until that time either. This ad is from 1977.

Before we get too far off from vehicles of the mid 50’s here are two Chevy ads the first from 1955 the second from 1956. Personally I kinda like the styling of the ‘56 models

I like those "task force" vintage Chev and GMC trucks too. I have another ad from 1956 featuring GMC from pickups to tractor units. This pic from the Montgomery dam project in Colorado. Check out the chrome grille on the pickup. Quality is not great as the big two page ad was way too big for my scanner.

That is a cool ad loadstar. I wonder what that vehicle is on the semi trailer on the right behind the description.

Here are a couple others. The first is a Standard Fuel Oils ad from 1955

Studebaker, its a really old name in cars. And before that, wagons. What surprised me was that you could still buy one in 1957. I thought the name had disappeared in the early fifties .

Studebaker made a minor comeback in the late 1950s with the Lark compact model. Studebaker production ended in South Bend, IN on Dec. 20, 1963 with production continuing at Hamilton, ON until March 17, 1966.  The Avanti model continued under several different owners until 1991 with a restart attempted in 2006.

Interesting about Studebaker, I wonder how many are still around with production ending 50+ years ago I would imagine that they would be quite the collectablies?

It's much like the IH Scout community, just 15 years older.  There is an active Studebaker owners club with an annual show and you see them popping up at other old car events.

Father in law talks about cultivating fast to try and throw loose dirt up in the row between plants to cover up emerging weeds that shovels cant get for obvious reasons. If i not mistaken 1st cultivating was pretty slow when plants were small a d easily damaged. 2nd cultivating i think you went faster to throw dirt to cover emerging weeds and 3rd cultivating maybe slower again as corn was tall enough at times to rub on tractor and break? Idk i recall riding with dad on 4020 and front mount cultivator when i was pretty young but never had to cultivate myself as by time i was old enough it was chemicals and maybe once thru with cultivator.

Makes sense to me iowaboy. I have no doubt that going fast is not unusual but just something I thought about.

Here is a cartoon ad about the farmer retiring his team of horses for the new tractors of the Farmall letter series this one is from 1941.

Notice on the top it states “Farmall Farming Marches On” that same line is used in the promo film that U-C posted earlier and that film is from 1939. Interesting that the B was not included in that film since it was introduced in 1939.

I was also taught that throwing dirt up around the base of the stalks would make it harder for a windstorm to blow the young plants over.  Not sure if that really mattered or not.

Are those shock absorbing springs on those front spindles? I've never seen one like that before. 

Here are some traditional old Farmalls from 1950. The whole line from Cub to M.

If you ever have the chance to visit the area of South Bend, Indiana, I highly recommend a visit to the Studebaker museum there. I had the opportunity to travel there many times over the years on business and taking customers to the museum was always a hit! Here are just a few of my favourites:
