International Harvester Refrigerator?

1949 IH Refrigerator
As this advertisement posted on Vintage Ads reveals, in 1949, farm implement manufacturer International Harvester was making refrigerators.  You could plow your field with an IH tractor, pick the crop with an IH picker, haul it to the house in an IH truck, and store it in an IH fridge.
