                     The Legend of the
                  Holveck’s Farmall “C”
       The Holveck farm lay in the rich mountain creek
black land bottom, four miles west of Cedar Hill, Texas.
In September of 1950, Paul Holveck bought a Farmall
“C”, a set of busters and a cultivator for $1,750 from
Homer Robnett at Farmers Supply in Waxahachie,
Texas. He along with his son, Jerrell, and a large
extended family farmed as much as 450 acres for almost
half a century. This little “C” was one of the many
Farmall’s that did the bedding, cultivating, mowing &
raking hay, and pulling an I-H 45T hay baler. It was also
used for pulling bundle wagons, an I-H 3 disc breaking
plow, a defoliation sprayer, and a belt was used to power
a 22” McCormick Deering thresher. During its hey-day, it
was often called on to go beyond the call of duty and
perform at a much higher level than the specs said it
should. It was truly a workhorse on the farm. Even after              The Holveck’s Farmall “C”
a long workday, the “C” could also be the life of the party.
It’s been used for countless school and church hayrides
and was “borrowed” by Paul’s younger children and
grandchildren for many trips to the creek for crawfishing,
hunting, and fishing or to the “back 40” for a spring picnic
or sometimes just for a joyride around the farm to look at
the wildflowers or cows. The Holveck farm was blessed
with much “Red Power” – an F20, F30, Super H, H,
Super M, M, Super C, and the “C” and a variety of
International Harvester implements also. But the “C” has
always been Jerrell’s favorite. That shiny, new Farmall
was the prettiest tractor that a fourteen-year-old boy had
ever seen. In 1979, the Holveck farm was sold to the
government for the development of Joe Poole Lake. At
that time, the “C” was sold to a local man, Jack King, who
used it to maintain a Saddle Club roping areanas. In
1983, Jerrell got the opportunity to buy the “C” from Mr.
King for $1,600. In 1985-1986, he restored it to its
original condition, and its only job now is to look good at
antique tractor shows. Jerrell’s grandchildren now drive it
around the driveway at his home and in the occasional
parade. This Farmall “C” has been used by four                        Jerrell on his farmall “C” at the
generations of the Holveck’s for work and fun, and it’s still          2011 GATMC/goltz fall show
