The Farmall Cub or International Cub (also widely know as simply the “Cub”) was the smallest tractor manufactured by International Harvester (IH) under either the McCormick-Deering, Farmall, or International names from 1947 through 1979 in Louisville, Kentucky.

There was the Standard Cub type, and the Lo-boy Cub (or Cub Lo-Boy) variation. They had a distinctive IH Red or Federal Yellow color schemes.

In the late 1950s, Farmall Cub sales shifted from agricultural use to industrial use. The International Harvester company capitalized on the shift, and changed the standard color for the Cub Lo-Boy and Cub from the familiar IH Red to Federal Yellow in 1960, with IH Red as an option.


In 1963, International Harvester changed the grill of these tractors to a flat-grill style and dropped the Farmall name in favor of International. In 1979, the last production run of Cubs were painted IH Red.
