I think you will find Euro spec IH stuff much more advanced. US IH hung onto H and M based tractors right until the 06 series...
B450 was certainly more advanced with integral 3pt, direct start diesel and differential lock. IH even imported B450's for the US market.
What did US IH plants build in the 50's that had direct start diesel, 3pt hitch, diff lock, live PTO, multirange transmission that they didn't borrow a skid unit from the UK? B-414 anyone? that tractor made 1950's US stuff look obsolete.
The 74 series could be had with double acting hydraulics, TA and even in a hydrostatic version.
Funny that the 54/74 series of tractors was made well into the 2000's while every US built design was LONG gone.
