Each year the The Northwest Michigan Engine & Thresher Club puts on The Buckley Old Engine Show in Buckley, Michigan. With tens of thousands of attendees each year, the show pulls in vendors, enthusiasts, members and children. With a variety of events and demonstrations, there’s something for everyone.
We are very excited to be hosting the Michigan Chapter 11 of The International Harvester Collectors in conjunction with our 50th annual show.
The International Harvester Collectors is a club dedicated to the preservation of the history and the machinery of the mighty International Harvester Company.
The International Harvester company was formed in 1902 through the merger of McCormick Harvester, Deering Harvester, Plano Harvester, Milwaukee Harvester, and Warder, Bushnell, & Glessner Company.
In 1985, IH sold its agriculture division to Tenneco, Inc. Tenneco then merged IH with its subsidiary J.I. Case to form CaseIH.
Chapter 11 will have a special exhibit marking the 70th anniversary of the Farmall Cub tractor. There will be an exhibit of tractors and equipment sold through The Ina Stor., The Ina Store has been an International Harvester dealership starting in 1944 and is still a CaseIH dealership. They will be selling a large selection of IH merchandise including signs, banners, books, toys, hats, and apparel. You can also buy a raffle ticket for a Farmall peddle tractor supplied by The Ina Store. If you are looking for parts for your antique IH tractor or engine, Chapter 11 will also have a parts corral.
So if you like International Harvester tractors and equipment, Buckley will be the place to be this year.
