Re: Show us your Vintage Tractors

New Driver

Found this in an old Vermont barn where it had sat since the 60's.  Brought it home to Maryland in 94 and restored it.  Hand-start two-cylinder. Back in its time, they started them on gasoline (the red fuel cap), and once warmed up they switched a lever on the 3-way valve and ran them on kerosene. Those are original tires too.  Not repops, actually the original set.  Hard as a rock and have teeth marks from mice gnawing on them.  Miller Tire's tire black and they look like new.

Re: Show us your Vintage Tractors

Pit Crew

I met Francis Enos a few years ago at the Ferndale Concours and we have been best friends ever since.  He brought his great-grandfather's Case 300 orchard tractor to the show.  Francis said "It was his only tractor and it took 11 months to restore". Last year at the Concours he even let me drive it.
