I have just bought a LA at a farm auction sale here in Australia. The serial number is LA 4816538, which makes it a 1944 build. It has never been repainted and is very faded but it is a khaki colour, not flambeau red. It has CASE in black letters vertially on the fenders, but the lettering seems smaller than that on other LAs I have seen.

I have heard that new ex military LAs were balloted to Australian farmers at the end of WWII and it may be one of these. It is definitely an agricultural tractor, not one of the military industrial tractors.

Anyone know about ex military LAs?

Thanks

Bob

The US Army and Navy both used LAI's during WWII.
Generally (though not always) the front axles on the LAI's were mounted on a transverse spring. Some of the Army LAI's were equipped with air brakes. I believe in some instances Case would change the model of a tractor before it left the factory, a tractor built as an LAI might have been changed to an LA or vis versa. The military did purchase some ag tractors, but these can be hard to document as they would not put military ID plates on these tractors.

Today's Featured Article - A 1937 John Deere Unstuck - by Gary Hickman. Here is my story of how I got the pistons out of a 1937 JD B that the engine had been stuck for about 14 years: About 12 years ago my Dad gave me one of the tractors I ran as I was growing up on our farm in central Nebraska. The engine on this tractor, a 1937 John Deere "B", had been stuck for 2 years before he gave it to me. This last spring (1999) I hauled the tractor to our 2 acre lot in St. Libory Nebraska where it joined my antique machinery collection, at that time a 1929 Caterpillar T ... [Read Article]
