This took me 5 working days start to finish. The sheet metal parts were painted a year or so ago. It was time to finally get this job done. I did not think to take a pic before I started. Almost complete, waiting on a couple decals to be made. These are great lookin tractors, classic styling from over 4 decades ago. I like them better than the newest stuff. Rod.

another great job Rod I agree on the look and design of the 70 series they truly were "Jet Age" tractors well ahead of their time they sold themselves I loved them from the first look I got of them in 1969, I see you added "Old Abe" to the wheel center as well nice touch talk soon

You do good work, I wish that I had the patience to get something to look that nice.
One question; The jack stands you are using, aren't they kinda wobbly with no more surface area where they sit on floor and under the tractor?
Just wondering, i'm not trying to nit-pick.

Classic Beauty! Those 70 series sure were good looking tractors. Nice to see one that looks better than new. Don

Great job,Rod, and as anyone having been in the bussiness knows, it's your own stuff that is allways last to get done because it doesn't pay the bills. ONE QUESTION? is there a supplier for the dash and console lettering on these old beasts? I think the originals were painted but on open station they are pretty much all gone. Thanks. RB

Nice job Rod!! I can see your dash decals, where did you get them? Also wonder if you have the shift console decals. I have an 870 gas that I want to do exactly what you have done here. Again, she looks great!

This is for Case Nutty. I have been a regular follower of the dase discussion forum for a number of years. Own a half dozen Case tractors from the 60"s and my brother has a bunch more. I am in Lander, WY at a wedding an was entertaining the possibility of stopping and seeing your collection on the way back on Tues. or so. Realize this is very short notice and not sure how to reach you other than through here. Will be at this motel through tomorrow morning and could be reached through this site to connect. Hope to hear from you somehow. Thanks

As you can see they are just sleeves welded together. They actually set firmly on the floor. I am doing the painting and work here. I know not to push on the tractor. However I would never let anyone else work on the tractor when supported like that. Rod.

Thanks for the good comment Patsy. The decal set for the earlier tractors was still available from CASE IH a couple years ago when I rebuilt the dash and console. Order part no. 321-3104 and the set you get will have everything you need. I think the price was around $35. Rod.
