I am just sick hearing this. It is likely that who ever stole them doesn't even realize what they have. If you could even find new replacements, you would probably pay at least $1000. They are in reality probably almost priceless. I don't think used UB Special sheet metal is probably that common. It could take you years of hunting to replace it, if you can find it at all. Just absolutely sickening! You have my sympathy.

Those parts are unique to the UB special, so who ever took them had to know what they were. quite often farmers would remove the side panels and "set them aside" and forget them. Some years ago a friend was looking around for one of them, found a reproduction of the side panel he needed. Cost him a hundred bucks and he was glad to find it.

I would agree. Who ever took it knew you had it and either needs it or knows someone that is willing to pay dearly for it.

Have you had anyone of questionable charactor around the shop lately?

Its similar to most gun thefts from a home. Its someone that knows your schedule and and knew where to look.

Soundguy has a terrific idea.

Take a few pictures so they can "see" the parts, then post a heavy "REWARD" under the picture so all has a incentive too look for them.

It is legal where I live, it's called the Castle Doctrine.It is a state law. If a person will steal your stuff he will also be prepared to do you bodily harm.Stand your ground, shoot first,ask questions later.

I noticed you still don't know what to value the parts at. Check around the collectors clubs,with that unique of tractor,someone in the clubs may know who owns the few localy therby possiably narrowing the search. Good luck
