This is one of our “cold rainy day” projects. It is a 1952 Farmall Cub tractor that we are restoring. When I was eight years old I learned to drive on on just like this one. My parents turned me loose on 4,000 acres of South Texas ranch land to explore and I did. Right now we are replacing a brake drum and then I believe it will be completely mechanically sound. We’ll test it for a few weeks and if everything is ok, we’ll start on the cosmetic work – soda blast it and completely repaint everything.
By the way, the Internet continues to amaze me. I can get any part I need for this little tractor in two days (radiator, brake bands and drums) – down to the exact decals a new 1952 tractor would have.
