The Farmall Super C was built by International Harvester from 1951 to 1954 in Chicago, Illinois, USA.

Model History

For Company history see
Main article: International Harvester

The Farmall Super C was the 2nd model in the Super-series. Except for the white circular Super C logo on the hood sides, the new version looked exactly like the old one. A 1/8" larger bore for the engine increased displacement from 113 to 123 ci and boosted the output to 24 belt hp. The Super C came with International’s Fast-Hitch, a quick-connect 2-point hydraulic hitch system, with a line of matched implements.

Tractor Comparison

The smallest row-crop (tricycle-type) tractors from each major American manufacturer built in the 1951-1954 period ranged from the 21 belt hp Case VAC to the 29 hp Cockshutt 20 and its Co-op E2 twin. The Farmall Super C fell in mid-pack with 24 hp. It was replaced in 1956 with the little-changed Farmall 200.
