Here’s another cool find from the recent Monmouth car show. From a distance, it appeared to be a nicely done Scout II, but upon looking closer, I noticed the nameplate. Farmall?

Of course, it is an IH Scout II; I imagine the Farmall tag is a tougue-in-cheek owner modification, as Farmall was the trade name of IH’s tractor division. In fact, we used to have a big Farmall tractor plant right here in Rock Island, until it shut down in 1985. It was a severe blow to our town.

It is not strictly stock, but the customization was all in all quite attractive. A fine Cornbinder, indeed.
