Hi Case Nutty 1660
Interested to see your comments re the "CASE" tobbaco harvesters - as far as I know there was only one of these sold here new in the Nelson area of the South Island,of N.Z. where a lot of tobbaco was grown commercially. I never actually seen the machine, however somewhere here in my collection I do have a press article and a photo of the machine away back some time in the late 1950's.
It was powered with the "CASE" 124 cubic inch, "A125" 4 cylinder air cooled engine, this was basically the same engine as the "VA" tractors had only it was air-cooled. That engine was also used as an option on the "CASE" model "77" towed combine from the late 1950's.
Hope that you find this rambling of interest.
