After a long spell away from the hobby I got back in. I picked up a few projects including some Simplicity and Allis Clalmers. I really like my '73 A-C 410. The previous owner had built a shelter from a truck bed camper cover for it. It will get a restoration back to the correct orange and white. I would like to add the correct lights to it also.

This B210 came from the same seller. It too is worth putting back like it once was with the correct seat.

And this JC Penny. I love it. It appears to have had a deck transplant at some point. If the deck is good I will color match it to the rest of the tractor during it's restoration. I believe these JC P tractors are rather low production, possibly as few as 500,  can anybody confirm that? Someone told me that mine should be # 149 of 500. Unconfirmed, really not that important, but interesting.

I have eyes on a pile (4 or 5) Simplicity 724, 728, & 737 types close by here also. Just waiting and watching for the right time to swoop in.

 

The 410 outside after a rinse and with the John Deere blade removed.  The blade fits well and I will probably try it when I need to clear the snow from my driveway.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
