After the end of World War II, the state-owned Argentinian company that made aircraft purchased a loss-making American tractor firm, Empire Tractor, to produce a model called Model 88. However, this tractor model failed miserably after few were produced.
So, the firm IAME (Industrias Aeronáuticas y Mecánicas del Estado) decided to produce a pick-up using the tractor engine after making a few modifications. As the model was produced for farm-lands, this model was called Rastrojero (stubble, in Spanish). It was 1952. The first generation saw over 33,000 units being produced.
This pick-up model became so famous that the 2nd generation model continued to be produced until 1979.
