Hi from Ohio

Postby Redclip » Thu Jul 04, 2013 9:49 am

I've been using the great information here for a while now, and decided it was time to join up and maybe make some contributions.
Got my 76 cub from my father-in-law, who bought it new in 1977. He used it to plow a small garden and push snow in the winter. Eventually, health problems led to the Cub being parked for about ten years, when I bought it from him.

Its now used for mowing and snow plowing. I have the original receipt for it, as well as a quote from another IH dealer. The other dealer quoted a price (this is in 1977) of $4416.00 for a Cub with fast-hitch factory installed. He bought it from another dealer for $3300.00, and got a fast-hitch for $378.00. Other prices on the sales slip: wheel weights $113, International #1200 trailer $339, 54A blade $295, blade extension $19, and chains $120.
Another bit of paper I have is the green factory test tag, which has the date ( of manufacture, I assume), leaks, high idle, and low idle.

Looking forward to the Cub Tug

Welcome to the forum. Looks like you got a nice Cub. You will definitely enjoy the Tug. See you there.

Thanks guys. The picture posting help was intended for PC's, so I had to improvise and figure out the procedure for a Mac. I'm a lot more comfortable with Cub era technology.
Barnyard, thanks for the photo tips!

Rudi, would you be interested in the sales receipt and the quote for the Sticker Shock page?
