sbrant Posted March 31, 2013 Share Posted March 31, 2013 (edited) This tractor has an interesting history behind it. Industrial version of the IH 706, one of 124 built, most which were diesels. Ours has a gas engine in it, and is one of 3 gas powered 2706s that we know to exist. The original engine, which would've been a C263, was replaced with a C282 out of a 501 combine (same block as the 263, but is also sleeveless, while the 263 had sleeves). Under that red paint is the original yellow paint that was on it when it left the factory. It was rebuilt some time in the early 1990s, then sold to a guy that lives a few miles from our farm, where it sat behind his house until 2 years ago. He had other offers to buy it, but they all wanted to turn it into a pulling tractor. Dad bought it because he was looking for something to plow with, he didn't realize what it was until he got it home and noticed the Industrial badge on the grille.
