CUB Serial Number 501

Postby Mike Schmudlach » Tue Aug 10, 2004 8:23 pm

The first production Cub serial number 501 was in our display tent this weekend for our state show. We also had M serial number 507.

We had about 300 IH tractors and a bunch of trucks including a really nice D model Woody.

Mike sounds like something worth looking at. Did you get a look at H 533 at Mt Pleasant?

Does anyone have a pic of Cub 501 so we can see what it looks like today?

Cub 501 looks like any other early Cub except that it has hyd. now. The tractor is used regularly for mowing etc....
One thing different on the tractor is that on the hood where the horizontal ribs are, there is a flat spot in the middle where a brass plaque was telling of it being given to an IH exec. The oroginal owners of the tractor have the plaque. The owner of the tractor would like to get the plaque but the family of the original owner would like to get the tractor back........so on and on the saga goes.
The tractor had an engine rebuild a few years ago and had a new paint job but nothing fancy. This is still a working tractor.
I don't think it will make it to Cubarama but it will be at the IHCC 2005 Winter Convention in Madison, Wisconsin. Feb 24,25and 26, 2005

:twisted: Every time I see a post about 501 there is never a picture of it and I could not find one on the historical page Mike posted. It is either elusive or it does not exist.

:o :o :o Man! Shouldn't that thing be in the Smithsonian, or some other museum? To think the one that started it all is still slaving away. I know, it's just a machine......but so was the Wright Flyer! :lol: :lol: :lol:

Now that would be nice. You would think that if it goes to tractor shows that there ought to be a current (RED) picture of it in somebodies camera.

There is another picture of 501, taken at the same time. The only difference is the 2 guys aren't in the picture. That one was published in both Letourneau's Photo Archive book and Ken Updike's Cub book.
