Very Rare International Harvester 240 Industrial Tractor with loader and backhoe

This is a 1960 International Harvester 240 Industrial, with original Wagner loader and backhoe. I’ve talked with my friends at Red Power and this may be the only one in existence. Apparently there were less than 500 Industrial 240s made and most of those had only the loader, not the hoe combination. This tractor has power steering, but no other on-board hydraulics. There are no quickhitch lift arms or PTO. This is a true, factory built, industrial tractor. The loader and backhoe operate from the front mounted, crankshaft driven pump. There is a selector valve with the loader spool valve to switch between the loader and the hoe. It starts right up and I drive it regularly (to mow) The tractor is about 95% complete. The only major parts missing are the 2 engine side aprons that connect to the hood, and the seat cushions. The big expense in restoring this is that the hydraulic system will need completely rebuilt. Wagner doesn’t make these any more so it’s difficult especially if you want to do an as factory new restoration. The known issues with the actual tractor are: It needs a water pump, carburetor rebuilt, steering box rebuilt or tightened, rewired, new gauges, battery box and cover, new tires (one is new), and of course paint. The radiator was cleaned and checked about 5 years ago. I also flushed and changed the transmission fluid. Included is an original IH/Wagner Blue Ribbon service manual. This tractor will be a fine and rare addition to an IH collection. This is located near Peoria, IL.
