Here is a picture of my 1924 Fordson which I restored after it
had been sitting out in a field for 16 years. I completely
disassembled it and hauled it 18 miles to my home in the trunk of
my 1959 Ford car. Each piece was sand blasted and painted before it
was reassembled. It was rebored, has new piston rings, valves and
guides, all new bearings in the transmission. Many of the parts are
hand made, such as spindle belts and bushings. It runs and looks
like new. I have had it in several parades and one show at
Pinkneyville, Illinois.
