Another Cockshutt combine ad from Farmers Advocate and Canadian Countryman dated July 12, 1958. Also an undated Oliver ad.

Tim, good to see some Canadian content here with the Cocskshutt combine ads. Here is one a little newer than yours. Without checking I believe it would have been about 1960. The last models with the engine mounted down under the grain pan. And of course the matching pull type swather to go with it. I've got one of those.

Its interesting to see the suggested price for the old Cockshutt combine (428). This would be one of the later model ones, painted harvest gold. Not sure but think it would be about 1961.

This ad makes you think just how HUGE of a company IH was in that time period. It's just a shame how such a great company was destroyed by such a few ill mismanaged, arrougant, bull-headed people -it is/was criminal.................

Nice lot of ads today. I see Irma Harding is demonstrating the IH fridges. Those old Cockshutt catalogues bring good money nowadays. Lucky I happen to have a couple of them from the fifties. This scan from the combine brochure showing the two big ones, the 132 and 137. My Uncle had a 132 with the big knobby "airplane tires" back in the late sixties.

This next one dates back to the late 1940s , the days of two man combines. The driver had it easy, just follow the standing crop and let the combine man adjust the cutting height and keep tabs on the combine.

I have a 1/16 scale metal toy pickup truck just like the one pictured in the top photo, it has two tone paint, turquoise & white. It was in the toy box at my grandparents and my brothers, cousins & I used to play with it every time we went there, it's got to be around 50 or so years old. After my grandparents passed and my unmarried aunt that lived with them was going through things & downsizing, she passed it on to me.

You likely have a valuable collectible toy there Hoot. The only place I have seen one of them is on ebay for sale for big money.

Here is an ad for the new compact IH. I believe they were called the C99 in Canada and C900 for the U.S. built trucks. The engine was the little Scout "half a 304" four cylinder.

Trying to post some pics, not sure if this is workking

I have never seen a 4156. It has one of my favorite IH engines. The DT429. The 429 was also in the TD20B. Overhauled a few that were the TD20B. The only trouble I remember was the "wet sleeves" leaking coolant into the crankcase. Seems to me that it was kind of a "step-child" engine. IH didn't seem to like it much. I thought it was a rugged dependable engine.

Heres a 3388 (2+2) doing some row crop work back in the spring of 79.

Well that file was a bit too big to upload so here is just a 3588 by itself.

Speaking of toy IH trucks, I saw one of these R series Travelalls on ebay a few years ago and have never seen one since. It looked like a well built replica.

Here is some more "color" I don't know why it's green?

Strange how the sky was green in that ad. I bet IH didn't plan it that way.

Heres one of my favourite 2+2 ads showing a 3588 pulling the very popular IH 6200 drills. This one has the built in hydraulic transport so no need to buy a separate drill transport. Just get out and work that field nice and black with your 645 vibra shank (vibra chisel?) and then pull in with the 6200 disc press drills . Great crop emergence and leaving a field as smooth as a carpet for the rest of the season.
