International tractors were originally manufactured by International Harvester, which was founded in Canton, Illinois, in 1902 when the Deering Harvester Company and the McCormick Harvesting Machine company merged with three smaller farm equipment manufacturers. By 1923, the International Harvester Company had released a new type of tractor, which it called the Farmall model. Due to the overwhelming success of this new model, which stemmed from its ability to efficiently and expediently perform a variety of farming tasks, the International Harvester Company decided to re-brand itself as Farmall.
International tractors manufactured before the re-brand to Farmall are frequently sold on auction sites such as eBay, and they appear in a variety of conditions. It is common to see tractors for sale that are missing vital machinery or other external parts. When searching for International tractors on eBay, be sure to look at all available pictures to gain a proper understanding of the condition of the model.
