The Farmall 130 was built by International Harvester from 1956 to 1958 in Chicago, Illinois, USA and Louisville, Kentucky, USA.

Model History Edit

For Company history see
Main article: International Harvester

For 1957 the Hundred-series (100. 200, 300, etc.) became the 30/50-series (130, 230, 350, 450, etc.). All models were restyled with a new 2-tone paint scheme, although the sheet metal was unchanged. Harvester Red was still used for the body and chassis but a new Harvester White was applied to the grill and wheels and the hood sides under the Farmall lettering. The McCormick brand name lettering had become so small as to be almost invisible. The Farmall 130 was mechanically almost identical to the the Farmall 100 it replaced, except that the compression ratio of the engine was increased, giving the tractor a little more hp.

Tractor Comparison Edit

Other makes and models competing most closely with the Farmall 130 were the Minneapolis-Moline BG and Oliver Super 44, although both were slightly more powerful than the Farmall. The Massey-Harris Pacer was somewhat smaller and less powerful. The Ford 501 was built in the offset style, like the Farmall, but was quite a bit heavier and more powerful. Another small tractor competing with the Farmall for some uses was the standard-tread John Deere 40. During 1958 International Harvester replaced the Farmall 130 with the slightly more powerful Farmall 140.
