The May/June 2017 issue of Antique Power magazine will be available in subscriber mailboxes and on newsstands soon. Our cover tractor is a 1937 Farmall F-20 owned by Dale Vannelli.
The Farmall went into limited production in 1924 and was an immediate success in the field. Sales started slowly, but increased so rapidly that by 1932 over 135,000 had been sold. In 1932, IH introduced the new tractor as the Model F-20. With the introduction of the F-20, the name “Farmall” became a brand that encompassed International’s entire growing line of row crop tractors.
