International 66 Series
Ertl has offered a wide variety of 66 series tractors since the lines launch in 1971. Learn more about the toy 66 tractors here on ToyTractorShow.com's 66 series history section.
Ertl announced the introduction of six new models from the International "66" Series in the Replica issue #45 June/July 1990. Ertl produced four of the "66" Series in the mod-70's - the 966 Hydro, the 1066 ROPS, the 1066 with Cab and the 1466 with duals and cab. In the summer of 1990 Ertl brought back the popular IH series with 6 new 1/16 models. Each tractor featured a collector's insert with the month and year manufactured. All the models were made with die-cast rims. Several revisions to the original 1970's tooling were made to accurately resemble the real "66" Series tractors detail. The first tractor in the collector's set was a special edition 1066 which was an exacting replica of International's five millionth tractor. The next was the 1466 Turbo with cab. The third "66" Series model was the open station 966 followed by a 1066 with canopy ROPS. Fifth in the series was a Hydro 100 with duals and canopy ROPS. Number six in the series was the top of the line 1566 with duals and cab. The "66" Series collector's set was kicked of by the 5 millionth IH tractor in September 1990 and ran through July 1991 with the release of the 1566. Below is a chart published in the Replica showing the differences between Ertl's 1970's 66 series casting and the 1990's casting.
