The Case VA series tractors were introduced in 1942, and were a very successful line for the Case Tractor Company. Manufactured until 1956, it could be used for a variety of jobs in agriculture and industry. During the 14 years of production nearly 150,000 Case VAs were built. A Case VA was not a powerful tractor. It was only rated at 17 horse power on the draw bar. They were all 4-cylinder engines with the first engines coming from Continental; after 1947 Case built their own engines. The engine was only rated at 1425 RPM. Our Case is a 1948 model with an electric starter and distributor. The early models had a magneto and probably no starter. It would have been built in Racine, Wisconsin where all Case tractors were produced. The first Case VA models were priced at $710; by 1952 the price had increased to $1388.
