Apparently it has seen it most productive years slip by and now just sets and poses for the next person who happens to be armed with a camera and appreciate it history to take a moment or 2 and take a few pictures of it in it's current form. Not being complete and missing some major components it still keeps history alive. C & C appreciated. Enjoy

Thanks for the commentary. Such much history is passing away without notice. Thanks for sharing Norm.

And thank you for looking Ron. Being an old farm boy these old tractors and implements that are used with them have a special place in my heart no matter what brand they wear, although I am more partial to the Massey Harris Ferguson line.

Looks like it may have been a Farmall or International tractor.
She could tell some stories, that old girl.
Put the steam traction tractors out of business.

Great shot of history fading away. Growing up on a farm, I appreciate the machinery that once was. Dad had a horse drawn mower and hay rake until he bought a John Deer and converted them so they could be drawn behind the tractor. It was my job to ride the mower or rake and make sure the blades of the mower were lifted over any rock or other obstacle in the hay field. I'd make sure the rows of dry hay were raked into neat rows to make picking up the hay fast and easy. Lots of sun, sweat and I'd love to go back to those days again.

Yes it would be a Farmall and I think it is F-12 model.

That old girl looks like she would have been murder to steer! There are just too many people today that would just as soon cart her to a car crusher for a few bucks!

Yes some people would, but thanks to some caring people who love these old things history would be like here today and gone tomorrow. The preservation of these old tractors is very expensive but delivers a lot of satisfaction.

I remember my Grandpa's Farmall. Wasn't that old but I loved it when he fired that baby up.
