This 1938 International W14 is one of 1162 manufactured in only 1938 and 1939 by the International Harvester Company. This version is fitted with an optional (at extra cost) system which allowed it to burn TVO. Basically this consists of an inlet manifold (vaporiser) heated by the exhaust gases and a small tank for petrol (the small cylindrical tank set in the engine cover) which was used for cold starting.
The W14 was rated as a two-plough tractor. Power output was rated at 17 hp and the transmission had three forward speeds with one reverse gear. Weight was approximately 3,300 pounds (1,485 kg). Rubber tyres were available as a factory fitted option.
