Motors Truck & Tractor manual

Postby radioguy41 » Mon Mar 04, 2024 10:59 am

I recently picked up a copy of the Motor's Truck & Tractor manual, in better than average condition. It's a 1953, 6th edition (the hard to find edition, most are 3rd edition). It has about 20 pages of IH tractor stuff in it plus oodles of other tractors and even engine stuff for the likes of Buda, Continental, and Le Roi. I've had my eye open for quite a while but every time I found one, and it wasn't often, it was a 3rd edition and looked like it was retrieved from the Titanic. This one's in nice solid shape.

Any chance you would scan the IH pages and have Dennis add it to the manuals section?

If it has any copyright statement I cannot add it. If not, it would be a good addition.

I searched Stanford Uni's database and found the copyright was renewed in 1981 which extends it for a total of 95 years or until 2048.
