The Farmall 140 was built by International Harvester from 1958 to 1981 in Chicago, Illinois, USA and Louisville, Kentucky, USA.

Model History Edit

For Company history see
Main article: International Harvester

The McCormick Farmall 140 was based on the previous Farmall 130 but was restyled, with a new white-painted squared-off grille with 3 crossbars in a red grille surround. The IH emblem was attached to a white mesh top section of the grille. The 140 was nearly unchanged mechanically. In 1963 the 140 was restyled again, with a white mesh grille with fine vertical bars to match the new "04-06 Series" tractors. In 1968 the McCormick Farmall 140 was rebranded the International Farmall 140. Production continued until 1981 making the 140 one of the longest-lived tractor models ever.

Tractor Comparison Edit

Competition for the Farmall 140 initially came from several other makes of 1-row row-crop tractors, as shown in the table. John Deere made a small standard-tread model of similar size and price. All of the other models went out of production in the late-1950s, leaving the market to International Harvester. When the ancient International 140 was retired in 1981, the company came up with the diesel-powered International 274 to serve these customers.
