An International 1206 Wheatland spent most of it’s days working in Minnesota, but now, it enjoys a life of showing off.
Jared Finegan of Ashkum, Ill. farms with John Deere tractors, but International holds a special place in his heart.
“My grandpa’s dad was a big International guy,” said Finegan. “I got into Internationals about 15 years ago,”
While he says the Wheatland tractors aren’t popular in his area of northcentral Illinois, that didn’t deter him from purchasing it from a farmer in Minnesota.
Finegan and his brothers will buy and restore tractors and will take them through parades. Some of their collection includes Oliver and Allis Chalmers.
