I also posted this on the Case forum. Minneaolis-Moline made the FIRST front wheel assist tractors. The first ones were made in the first ones were made for the US Army during WWII, as well as experimentals before that. The First "Production" FWA tractor was a Gvi, later marketed as a G-704 in 1961, as I recall from company paperwork. MM Beat Oliver by 2 or 3 months in the release of FWA tractors. Massey-Ferguson also beat Oliver in marking & selling them, as MF had a sales & Marketing agreement with MM. They repainted MM's for MF and made a few minor cosmetic changes. the first Oliver "test" tractors were out a while before they were "Production". MM dealers in Montana had been converting "G" MM's to FWA since the late 1940's, & all thru the 1950's.

Interesting only question I have is what about the GTX that was all wheel drive and six cylinder right? So MM was not new to the idea.
