Okay, here are my two pennies on deciding between these two:
Get a 140. If you live in tobacco country, they are common and relatively
cheap right now. The Super A's have become collector's items and can be
much more expensive - although they are beautiful restored (and not
practical for farm work at that point!) I have seen 70's 140's for under
2000 lately. That's less than a riding lawn mower!

IH 140, Super A
-lots of power
-harder to turn and steer than cub
-slighly less visiblibility--better used for one row cultivating, or stale
bedding w/basket weeder, or with finger weeder
-easy to mount fert sidedressor
-split hydraulics, you can operate front and rear independantly
-geared too high--they go fast!!
-gas engine, but not too bad a guzzler
