Default Farmall Hit Miss Engine?

I was perusing through the August Gem and found an ad for a 2-1/2hp Farmall engine. Anybody ever hear of this? or is just an IHC engine that someone calls a Farmall because its red and IHC. Any ideas?

I'm no expert but as far as I know the name Farmall was only used for the IHC tractor line. I, like you, suspect that what is for sale is a red IHC engine.

I figured it was a misprint and was probably suppose to say 2 1/2 Famous engine.
