Skip Chamberlain (left), Lee Northrup and Jim Northrup with the 1956 Cockshutt Black Hawk tractor that they restored. Their restoration was so good that a member of the family they purchased it from didn't even recognize it.

Lee Northrup shows off his scaled Cockshutt tractors at the Flywheels and Pulleys Show held annually in Constableville, N.Y. Lee converted a pair of Montgomery Ward garden tractors to look like a full-sized Cockshutt Model 540 and a model 550.
