Greetings Don:
just posted a general question the other day and got good helpful response. one of them mentioned your name! that you are currently writing a book on Kansas Case Dealers.
i have a 1948 Case LA, in Arizona, that i bought out of Vinita, OK (moms home town), sort of close to Coffeyville, KS (dads home town).
getting ready to make an umbrella for it, and wanted to stencil a Case dealership on it. one that was close to either of the two towns. any way you could help with some info???

I wish I could be more help. I am writing a book about Case dealers in general, not just KS and at the same time trying to identify as many original Case dealers as possible. There may have been (and most likely was) a Case dealer in both those towns in the 40's and 50's. It seems there was a Case dealer every 7-10 miles, and sometimes closer. That changed a little when the 500 diesel came out and Case made their dealers have the ability to service diesel engines. That probably eliminated 1/4 of their small, part time guys.
I do have a dealer listed in Columbus, Oswego, Altamont,Independence, and Caney, KS. So the 7-10 mile figure holds true. I am am sure there was one in Coffeyville at one time as well-I just don't know who yet. As far as OK is concerned, I have very few dealers to date. Let me know if I can help you. Don

well, thanks Don! thus far, ihave been looking for Case Advertizing stuff on Ebay and know that eventually, i'll find something... big items are the mechanical pencils that were given away at these places, an occaisional button, and once in a great while i have seen owners manuals with a dealers name on them.

so, because i'm looking and if you were interested, or it would serve a purpose, i'd be more than happy to send you a list of names, as i run across them???

thanks a million

Thats basically how I get mine as well as people on this board who share names they remember and my job takes me on the road, so I stop at feed stores, equipment dealers, etc. and ask who was the Case dealer. A great way to meet people and hear incredible stories. Good Luck! Don

Hey Don,
One you can add to the list:

Pounds Motor Company
Winter Garden, Florida
(407) 656-1352

Herbert Pounds is an amazing reserve of knowledge and history. He has forgotten more than I can ever hope to learn about tractors. Worth the time to stop by and visit if you ever get to Florida.

Thank you very much! I have talked to Herbert by phone and photographed his building, but have not met him personally yet. Don
