    LOL, In 74 I was not even born then. I like the old stuff better anyday as long as it's in good shape or been restored.

    That's a nice old 70 but don't see hardly any with a bucket like that at least around here.

    I have to say the 70 will outlive the 3320 even with the age difference 1954 to 2012. Not that the 3320 isn't built EXTREMELY well but old Iron is built much heavier and their is almost nothing to go wrong on it. Simple always means longer life least it seems to. New stuff has EFI all the computer controls so much tighter tolerances.

    My 70 is the first I've ever seen around with a loader on it. My Grandpa purchased the tractor than years later put the loader on it. I think the loader was installed early 70's. Before that it was a plow tractor. I also have a cozy cab for it but like it open station better.

    (edited to note) Planing on full ground up rebuild of 70 so also why i think it will outlive my 3320.
