One of my coworkers called dibs on this tractor that came in scrap that he wants to restore but he's not able to tell to much about it. We are looking for any info that can help him in the restoration process. These are all the pics I have at the moment if you need any specifics let me know and I'll get them asap. Thanks for the helpImageUploadedByTapatalk1415059508.200895.jpgImageUploadedByTapatalk1415059519.893496.jpgImageUploadedByTapatalk1415059529.812555.jpgImageUploadedByTapatalk1415059542.573460.jpg

Looks like a Farmall H. Not positive. Mine is at my parents house and I don't see it much. They all kind of look alike but that one looks big. If it is they are pretty common and parts should be easy to come by.

Pretty sure that's a farmall 200, which replaced the super c. They made em '54-'56. Nice little tractor. Looks like your friend has some work ahead of him. Red power magazine should have a list of vendors for aftermarket and used parts.

It looks quite a bit like our old Farmall model "H". I've not seen one with a single front wheel, but I think that's probably more of an option. The headlights, steering column, and battery box under the seat look like model "H" stylings.

EDIT: Looking at it more, the steering column does look different than an H. I think an H steering column goes over the hood a little more instead of down the side like this one.

I think mce5802 is correct, this looks like a Farmall 200. They usually have a "200" emblem at the front edge of the hood. It's hard to tell from your photo if there used to be one and it's missing, or if there never was one. Look on Google Images for "Farmall 200". Looks like a good match.

Yea guys after a little research and your help it looks like a 200 it does have hole toward the front of the farmall emblem so there used to be another emblem there I'll check the other side a little better.

Its NOT an H or M, I can definitely tell you that 100%, the steering is wrong, hood etc. Looking at the engine & chassis, its either a C, Super C, or 200. You can tell the C from the rest as it did NOT have a water pump. The differences between the Super C and 200 are hard to tell by the pics you show. Judging by the hood alone, which could have been changed, it is a 200 as the Super C had decals not emblems. Email me if you want more information, I have original parts books etc to those tractors.

Definitely a 200. C's and Super C's had decals on the side of the hood, whereas the hundred series had badges like yours, even though the 200 badge is missing. Another significant difference is the front grille. The 200 has two vertical slots in the front that the C and Super C did not have. As already pointed out, it is not an H or an M either, as the steering shaft ran over the top of the engine on them, not down along the side.

1954 Farmall Super C that I restored back in 2004 (ignore the date on the photo, put new batteries in the camera and forgot to reset the date):

Never saw a C or Super C with a single front wheel but that doesn't mean they didn't make them. I have to go along with terry, it has to be a 200. H, M, Super M and the rest had steering wheel down the middle over the gas tank.

The single front wheel was a rather rare option, almost never seen in the northern states, but you do find them from time to time. I do not know what the advantage is with the single wheel. I have not seen a C or Super C with a single front wheel either, but I have seen a 460 that had it.

I spent my early teen summers >ok, 10teen to 15< on a 1954 super"C" cullavating corn 2rows at a time,
Forever. Your pictures gave me flashbacks to my uncles farm in Swanville Minneasota. About 120mi north
of where Terry is. Same front frame hydrolic lever lift as on this tractor. Ours had the hydrolic lift drawbar
on the rear. With the narrow 2-tire or single front, at the end of the row you would break your inside tire
and spin 180deg around that locked wheel. Ant it would exactly line you up with your next rows. The wide
front would not turn that tight. We had both. Terry, I think the difference in narrow front duel to single is
mud. Our duel would pack between the wheels and because of the top to bottom angle it would jam and
slide the front wheels, the single would not. Did I mention up and down the corn rows FOREVER.

The farmer next to us converted 2 of his Farmall's from dual narrow to single for the mud reason. Both
"C" family tractors. He joked about not doing his Super "M" so he would stay away from the boggy spots.
As both C's would not be able to pull out that big "M".

Take Care,
Rick

One of our older neighbors claims to not particularly like horses. The reason? When he turned 10 his father bought him a horse. And a single-row walking cultivator.

Single fronts are quite common here in SE Texas. The narrowness of the single made it suitable for cotton cultivation late in the season. In fact, I never saw a daul wheel tricycle until I was a teenager! All tractors in my town were single wheels or a 'spread axle' as the locals called a wide front.
