International Harvester Collectors Chapter 14 Inc is part of a 7,800 member worldwide collectors' network for the preservation of history, products, literature and memorabilia of the International Harvester Company. The purpose of our chapter is to create an educational atmosphere for public awareness of IH history and legacy, provide an educational forum for the sharing of information, and establish the International Harvester Collectors as an identity to which collectors of IH products can relate.
International Harvester Collectors Chapter 14 Inc. has 234 members who reside in California, Oregon, Idaho, Utah, New Mexico, Colorado, Michigan, Arizona, Nevada, and the country of England. Become an IH Collector member now. Begin your membership with Chapter 14 for only $30.00. Scroll down to Club Member Benefits to join.
We promote IH collecting, restoration, and show displays of these restored antiques. In doing so, we help preserve, research and complete the history of the IH company; support shows which feature IH by providing a file of members' show pieces; and highlight an IH model tractor at the Red Iron Corral, held annually in April at Tulare, California. This year IH implements will be our "featured tractors" at all of our events; so line up your plow, planters, combines, or any implement made by IH. Chapter 14 organizes local shows, participates in parades, provides a local newsletter, holds meetings with family and farm involvement, and promotes IH collecting and restoration among its members and local youth groups, while supporting the national organization.
California IH Collectors Foundation, formed by International Harvester Collectors Chapter 14, has assisted twenty local youth groups and chapters in ag related projects around the region. We are currently assisting the Santa Paula HS FFA, Carpinteria HS FFA, Wheatland HS FFA, and San Fernando HS ag teacher Russ Martin in the restoration of Farmall tractors. Contact us if you have a similar youth project in your vicinity, as we may be able to help.
Visit our charitable foundation page, and MAKE A DONATION. The foundation is a 501(c)3 organization and will provide you with a tax deductible receipt. A number of our members have done so in 2013 and so can you. Your donation of $50, $500, $1,000, or whatever amount you choose will help these youth realize their dream in restoring the IH legacy. If you would like to assist these youth clubs, please make a donation today.
