Tractor restoration projects pics

To try and help break my Powerstoke modding addiction I have recently substituted a new addiction.
Restoring antique John Deeres.
There are 4 old 2 bangers left on the farm from my Great grandpa and grandpa.
Here are some of the before and after pics I took of them in the last few months;

I added lots of tractor pics to my photobucket signature link if anyone is interested.


First project
1951 John Deere MT
Bought by my great grandpa in about 1959 for use on his 140 acre farm
Used with side mount planter and cultivator then later with 5’ sickle bar hay mower.
Retired around 1990 Restored in 2008 by me (4th generation)








Here is the day I surprised my grandpa with it;



Second project 1947 John Deere A
Bought for $1,000 by my grandpa in 1958 for his father to use as the first tractor on his 140 acre farm
Used with side mount planter and cultivator, plow, disc, hay rake, hay wagon, etc.
Retired around 1995
Restored in 2008 by me (4th generation), I started driving this tractor at age 4.














Here are the next two I got to do;
Another John Deere A I plant to paint pink for the wife and a 60 I want to do just right for myself,
both bought by my grandpa in the early 1960’s.








Anyone else got any pics?

I don't own any antique JD's...yet. But my grandpa has quite a few.
One 1936 JD Model D Orchard that he grew up driving and still has
2 Model B's; 1947? and 1949 both restored
One Model A 1949 Partially restored
And one 1953 MT

I love driving and pulling these tractors. They have provided such great memories and fun. As soon as my grand father passes (heaven forbid), he has willed the D to me and one day she will be fully resotred to all her glory. New tractors are cool, but nothing beats an ol' Johnny Popper!!

looks great and your grandpa looks thrilled to see it lol. But I live in a small town and these are all over the place. We have a local pull where you can pull pretty much anything from mowers to 4wheelers to pickup and tractors and they are very well represented there every year.
