Red E line continued into the mid-1940s


| April 2006



In the caption on page 31 (Farm Collector, January 2006) it says the Red Es were made into the 1930s. I have a book that shows them still in production until at least 1946. In a back issue (Farm Collector, November 2005) you showed some good close ups of a Silver King R66. The tractor in the photos has a Model IXK engine in it. This is the second Silver King I have seen with this engine. Most sources say they only used the IXA or IXB engine. It would be very easy to replace an original engine, as they are very similar, but it would also be easy for it to have come from the factory that way.
