1954 Farmall Super M
Jun 08, 2010
This tractor was featured for the month of June in the 2010 Classic Farm Tractor Calendar.
Like being inside a time capsule, Max Armstrong on his classic Super M, retraces the assembly line in the famous Famall Plant in Rock Island, Ill., where this IH tractor and many more were born. Life-like wall murals mirrored various models made here. The Farmall M was upgraded to a Super M with a 1/8 in. larger cylinder bore and aluminum pistons to increase horsepower. The Super M was built only in 1952-1954. This picture was taken in December 2007 before the historic factory was demolished. At one time there were more than a dozen murals of the Farmall tractors that were built there.
Owner: Max Armstrong
Max, an enthusiastic tractor fan, also has a Super H. He and Orion Samuelson host “This Week in Agribusiness” and are heard daily on Chicago radio WGN. Orion’s family F-20 was a miraculous restoration by I&I Club members.
