Thought you might be interested in a photo of my newly restored Farmall A, circa 1946. On page 17 of the February 2007 issue of Farm Collector was a photo of a Farmall A owned by Rob Bush of Oconomowoc, Wis. Through a mismatched trade I acquired that same tractor, and the photo is the tractor restored - many hours and dollars later. I acquired it last October and it was basically finished to run in the local 4th of July parade. When I brought it home my wife asked if I was going to the junkyard with it. I had never restored a tractor that was that far gone before, so I told her that comment gave me incentive to make her run. Thought you might be interested in a follow-up. If anyone has questions, please contact me.
