The B-450 *seems* advanced but you need to remember that it was not made at the same time as the US 450.

The B-450 looks like an M, but it was made at the same time as a 706.

We *did* have direct start diesels with 3pt hitch and available diff lock. We also had TAs that gave us 16 forward gears, hydrostatic power steering, modern hydraulics...
Not to mention three updates to the styling. I think that's what stymies me the most... Why not do like they did in Australia, and at least update the hood?

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

Maybe they just didn't need those things mentioned. Why have aux hyd if everything you are using is 3 point mount? The hood issue could be to be competetive with other tractors. Perhaps the Brits didn't like change. Maybe IH simpley built tractors suited to the needs and demands of the customer.
