Industrial Designers Transform Tractor Industry

Birth of the industrial designer signals the rise of tractor design.

The 1938 Farmall was one of industrial designer Raymond Loewy’s crowning achievements. The practical styling was carried throughout International Harvester’s entire tractor line, including the huge crawlers, through 1958. Shown here: a 1946 Farmall H. These tractors still look stylish.
