That tractor is so cool. It is far from ugly. Boy I'll bet parts like a hood and grill are real tuff to find. That could be a project that would be left to the grandkids. But boy what a fun search, think of all the fine people you'd meet.

Thought it might make a nice conversation piece. ya know put it in the yard plant flowers around it. I guess kinda like the old wheelbarrow tipped over..

Nice looking project tractor there JamesK, If I were you I would buy it, somewhere someone in this world has the parts you need to put this tractor together, part of the fun will be finding the parts and all of the nice people that you will meet....:)

Mike thats definatly true but i have my hands full of projects now. I have a car in my shop now. I have the 2 allis chalmers a B-210 and B-212 to work on along with the loader, sicklebar, mower decks and snow blower. so this one is just not gonna make it to the list. But if someone else is interested in it i can get it for who ever would like it. James k.
