Classic Car Overview

1956 International Harvester W400

The current owner of this tractor purchased it in 2009 as a true farm implement to use around his "gentleman garlic farm" and expansive property. By 2010 he decided it would be better used as a marketing tool on the farm and around town, so he had it pulled apart and restored and proceeded to use it more for show and shows than any kind of farm work.

As things have changed around the farm he's decided to move this beautiful tractor on to a new farm.

In terms of tractor production, the W400 is fairly rare. Many tractors have production numbers in the 30-40 thousand range, some less, some, like the Ford 8 series tractors, well up over 100,000 units produced. Only 3858 of the W400 was produced between 55 and 56. For a tractor, it has what some might consider upscale features like power steering and hydraulic, rear disc brakes. It also includes a hydraulic draw bar and live PTO, two front headlights and a single rear light, no brake lights. Three gauges show whats happening with the amps, oil pressure and engine temperature.

The 4.3L 4 cylinder puts out about 50 HP and puts all that power to the ground through IH's own Torque Amplifier 10 speed transmission, with 2 reverse gears. The engine turns right over via a 12 volt electrical starting system and although the Wix gaskets are said to be the culprit for the oil drips, the engine burns no oil. What helps the big 4 put that amplified torque to the ground are two Firestone 16.9-30 Field and Road tires, the front steered through Samson 7.5-18 Harrow Track tires.

Weather you're looking for a new show tractor to compliment a growing collection, a practically new tractor for working your property or are maybe looking to get into show tractors, this is a great place to start.

Priced at only $8500 this great tractor could easily be gracing your barn.
