Lack of time to go to shows with it,(has not been out in 3 years now)no way to haul it myself, paying for storage, ect. I'm sure someone else can more fun with it than I. Why not share the IH joy???
I know of lots of other great IH's that will NEVER be for sale because thier owners can't "see the light" and realize when its time to move on.
It(F-806 #501) really is a piece of IH history. This was the first tractor designed at the new Engineering Center at Hinsdale, first to have hydraulic T/A, ect.
