1911 IHC Titan 25 and Auto Wagon
Jan 24, 2011
This tractor is featured for the month of January in the Classic Farm Tractor Calendar.
What a dynamic duo! A classic Centennial tractor and car make the perfect pair. You’ll seldom see anything like this eye-popping pair of 100-year-olds, both owned by Lou and Regina Buice, Waco, Texas.
The 1911 IHC Titan features a 1-cyl. engine (bore/stroke of 10x15 in., totaling 1,177 cu in. rated at a slow 275 rpm). This mid-size IH model was designed to break sod with a 4-bottom plow. And get this—the Auto Wagon got its name because you could add seats to haul the family to church; remove the seats and it’s a farm truck for hauling!
Both beauties possess prized accessories such as brass light and IHC padlocks. The Auto Wagon sported a 2-cyl. air-cooled horizontally-opposed engine with a top speed of 20 mph. Better buckle up and hand on to your hat!
Owners: Lou and Regina Buice
Lou bought his first antique tractor as a teenager, working at his family’s general store. His is a collection of vintage heavyweight tractor. The Titan was meticulously restored by well-known Wendell Kelch, himself an IH historian/collector.
