    Thanks! I'm actually looking forward to getting it back out in the field. I started off just freshening up the paint. Sorta went over the edge.... Time to get both feet back on the ground. I used better paint and material than was originally used, and all the replacement parts are original equipment stuff. If I get another 36 years, I'll be happy. and 96 y.o.

    Very nice job. That is something to be proud of.

    But we should also put the age of this tractor into perspective and since you did such a great job it should have its place in history.

    36 years ago (1971)Farmwithjunk buys tractor.

    Richard Petty wins the Daytona 500

    Al Unser Sr. wins Indianapolis 500

    World Series: Pittsburgh Pirates won 4 games to 3 over Baltimore Orioles and first night game in world series history.

    Boxing Joe Frazier defeats Muhammad Ali

    Super Bowl V Balitmore Colts 16 Dallas Cowboys 13

    Jack Nicklaus wins PGA Championship

    Billy Jean King wins US Open

    Richard Nixion President.

    The good ole days and lots of memories with that tractor

    Thank Ya Scott!

    McGuires liquid cleaner/wax. It goes on and comes off with a light touch. I don't want to be grinding wax off of fresh paint. Most automotive grade paint will suggest a timeframe for when it's completely cured. Usually around 90 days on acrylic enamels. Wax can seal in components of the paint that you want to escape to atmosphere.

    Beautifully redone, Farmwith!

    If you remember what you paid for your Fergy in 71 (maybe $1500-1800?),
    compare it to what it is worth 36 y later. Several times that, I am sure.

    Very nice! When I look at it, I see a beatiful restoration. I'll bet when you look at it, you see every rusted bolt, busted part, and probably plenty of skinned knuckles on the way to that beauty. A lot of satisfaction is due you for having done such a great job.

    Not that cheap.... MSRP was $4100 roughly. I paid $3750 delivered to the farm along with an assortment of filters and a hat. A 150 diesel in average condition sells for around $6000 here now. Doubtful you could get this one for double that.
