Around 1940 this type of Farmall tractor was sold for a paltry $500. Farmall tractors were built to compete head-on against the incredibly popular Fordson tractor. Farmall quickly became popular as a row-crop tractor with a tricycle wheel configuration in the front (two front wheels right under the grill) but many models were manufactured for orchard work as we see in this more common configuration. This tractor’s original colour was bright red, a distinguishing colour for Farmall during its earlier years.
