My grandfather bought this tractor new in 1955.It was on the farm till mid 80s when I got it. We used it a little and then it sat in the shed until this June. We completely rebuilt the tractor seals,bearings, new motor. We got it done in time for the Oliver show @ Penns Cave. I only wish my Dad and Uncle could have seen it done.

Very nice, what kind of paint did you use. I used Imron on my last job and it was very pricey.

Very nice.

But it must be the lighting, but that sure looks more like John Deere green than Meadow green. . .

I know, I know- go get the bar of soap. . .
