For high-clearance model see: McCormick Farmall Super AV For industrial version see: International Super A

Introduced in late 1947, the McCormick Farmall Super A was an upgrade of the Farmall A with more standard equipment, adding to its weight. The Super A was mechanically identical to the A except for a slightly higher compression ratio that gave it slightly more power. The Super A ushered in a whole range of “Super” tractors.
