Farmall Cub Project

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.
