Case SI Airborne with Front Loader

The Case SI was a leaner version of the popular SC tractor. The SI was designed to fit into WACO gliders and dropped with parachutes during Word War II. This SI features a VERY RARE loader. These airborne tractors are highly prized due to small amount that where produced and survived the war.  

"A certain irony existed during World War II, when American industry shifted its energies from production of durable goods to wartime materiel. In the mid-1940s, the American farmer couldn’t get a new tractor for love or money — but the Army could, and did. J.I. Case was among several manufacturers that built tractors for wartime use, converting its popular Model SC into the Case SI Airborne tractor." Ken Cerra - Case SI Airborne Farm Collector  November 2012
