    I too have a love for tractors - not as old as some mentioned here but here's a couple of photos of my 1981 International 585. Its got a New Zealand built Rollmasta cab and normal runs a Belcher (again NZ Built) front end loader however here she is after working a 6 acre paddock. She's a true IH tractor built prior to the implosion of IH ion the early eighties

    My family owned a four wheel drive steel spiked Huber,was got new in the 1920s for the farm,was very hilly in lower NY ,across the road an up hill from, Butter Milk Fall. All of us kids play on an drove it around in the 1950 even in the early 60s. My Aunt Maude passed away in the mid 60s,last of family living in the frame house. An right after that some low life stole the tractor,it was willed to my Cuz who never got it do too a scumbag.
    It looked very very close to a Massey F4,but def rad/shell rounder at top,with oval flip lid.
    Likely never going to find the thief.
    If a pic of a 4WD Huber is around ,I love to have one??Thanks

  8. @dana barlow There are some Huber tractors still around. I could not find any 4WD models but here are two I found.

  10. I was at that "Worlds Fair"! Greatest memory was "Driving" the OT Mustang. Quail hunting. Man that does bring back memories from the day. They were some good eating.

    I've always wanted a Silver King, or Plymouth, which was the original name.

    When you get one for free you really can´t say no...
    It´s been sitting outside for 20 years and not being started past 10, the engine were seized, pulled the plugs and put a mixture of ATF and kerosene in the cylinders and after a week it were loose.
    After an quick overhaul and new fluids the old tractor purs like a kitty.
    Only problem left is the clutch, after years sitting outside it doesent work as it should, gonna be replaced.
    It´s a Ferguson TE-20 from 1955
    They are pretty similar to a Ford tractor, but these ones were made in England between 1946-1956

    That´s correct, think it´s pretty cool, like the pedal start Buick used to have.
