  • It's not the Ford-Ferguson Moto-Tug -looks like an IH Industrial Cub model.

  • What is amazing to me is that it is still upright and you can still read the writing on the hood after all these years.

  • It's a WF HEBARD SHOP MULE built with many IH parts. There is a collector's web site too...

  • My son sent me the pictures earlier this week and I went to the site. It is an IH.

  • The USS Hornet served one year and six days.

    She remains the last US aircraft carrier sunk by enemy action.
