I have a 1945 Case LAI Military. Does anyone know how many of these tractors were built. Also, where can technical info on this tractor (i.e. horsepower, cubic inches, or any basic info). I am beginning a restoration and any info would be helpful.

Brad: Interesting info. Charlotte Douglas Airport was Morris AAF in WW2, but is now home to an AFNG base collocated with the airport It was named Douglas airport in 1954 so maybe your LA got a new data plate to show the new name of the airport.

They used Case tractors at Aberdeen Proving Ground used for pulling large artillery weapons to and from the firing range. They had dual rear wheels and they may have had a road gear since they could travel at a very good speed.
This was back in 1951 when I went to work for the Army. Got drafted in 1953. Hal

It has tags on it with Douglas Air Force Base stamped on it. There is a hint of o.d.green paint and a little hint of yellow paint in a few places.

Brad: There were 2 Douglas Army Airfields in WWII

One in AZ on the Mexican Border and one in Georgia

Where is the tractor now?

They just over 1400 in 1945. The tractor is just an LA with some changes to grill and some other parts of the body. It has 403 4 cylinder gas engine. All of the engines and running gear from an LA will fit. If its military see whether it is Army or Navy to see what color it was painted.

Walt, That total of 1407 is for all LAI series. There is no distinction between military (LAIM) and nonmilitary (LAI) unless Brad goes to Racine and goes through all the build cards.

The whole experience can be marred if one moves too fast and makes too many assumptions that they can just use "as is" some parts they should be closely scrutinizing and possibly attended to. In such cases, rework makes what could have been a fun project turn into an irritant or even a nightmare. Minor Irritants To give you an example of an minor but irritating proble ... [Read Article]
