Here’s another Sam Lyons classic plane and tractor painting. This one is twice as good because there’s a Piper Cub and an International Harvester Farmall Cub tractor. The two Cubs are comfortable friends, just like the guy on the tractor and the fellow giving directions. Sam used himself as a model for the driver and the man with the floppy hat is our neighbor (and good sport) Michael. Sam took the sign on the hangar from real life. That sign is actually at Ranger Airfield in Ranger, Texas, on a city-owned hangar.
About the Piper Cub
Many Cubs are still flying today. You don’t have to be wealthy to own one! The light plane is low in price and uses less gasoline and oil than a medium- priced car. With a modest down payment you can pay for a Piper Cub in monthly installments. Yes, today it’s easy to fly . . . and economical too! This painting depicts a classic plane and tractor scene which is tranquil and decorative.
History of the Farmall Cub
The Farmall Cub or International Cub (or simply “Cub” as it is widely known) 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.
The two major variations of the Cub were the “Standard Cub” and the “Lo-Boy Cub”. They are recognized by their distinctive IH Red or Federal Yellow color schemes. In the late 1950s, sales of the Farmall Cub shifted from agricultural purposes to industrial purposes.
