Farmall Super H Technical and Background Information

International Harvester built the Farmall H in 1953 and 1954. There were two distinct models, with the key difference being that later models had "live" engine-driven hydraulics. This resulted in the battery being relocated under the seat, which is an easy way to distinguish them.

The Super H had slightly larger displacement than an H, resulting in greater horsepower.

Only 28,691 Super Hs were produced, compared to 390,317 Farmall Hs.
