Impressive 1066 part of Case IH display

This tractor was the centrepiece of Case IH’s display at Canada’s Outdoor Farm Show in Woodstock last fall


This 1066 International was restored to such a high standard that it might have been mistaken for one of the current production tractors on display at Case IH’s stand at Canada’s Outdoor Farm Show in Woodstock, Ont., last fall. Of course, it wasn’t, but it was a great example of what can be done to make an older machine look almost better than it did when it rolled off the assembly line.

Owned by a Southern Ontario farm family, the pristine 1066 was on loan to the display for the duration of the show. And it made a top-notch centrepiece to the Case IH exhibit.

The 1066 was built by International from 1971 to 1976, and it used IH’s own 414 cubic inch, six-cylinder diesel that delivered 125.6 horsepower at the PTO. When it came to transmissions, you had one option: the 16F-8R.

According to the Farm Equipment Guide, if you wanted to buy a 1066 new back in the day, you’d need to put down US$21,080. †
