International 384 of 1979 - reg LVY 645T at Pickering 09 - IMG 3224

An 'ex farm condition' IH 384 at Pickering Steam Rally 2009

The International 384 was built at the Bradford, England factory of International Harvester in the UK, from 1977 till ?, and under license by IH's joint venture in India, Mahindra Tractors. This was a compact 42 hp (31 kW) model with the modern cab that had become compulsory for noise reduction. The tractor was relatively low profile as the driver straddled the transmission rather than the tall flat decked cabs of some makes. This made it a popular tractor with stock farmers as it could fit in buildings. The 384 was sold without a cab from 1978-1982 in the US, where it served as an update of the 364, using the same International BD-154 4-cylinder diesel engine.

Tractor Comparison, US models Edit

As shown in the table, the only diesel-powered utility tractors cheaper than the International 384 and having about the same hp were the Allis-Chalmers 5040 and Long 460, both built by UTB in Romania, based on an old Fiat design. All of the other tractors were slightly more powerful than the International but considerably more expensive, some by several thousand dollars.
