Thank you all for the comments. After considering them, I contacted a company that specializes in sheet metal restoration in our area. They advised they could repair it ready for paint for around $200.00. I think that's probably fair enough. The tractor is a wide front with serial number 18200021 which, I assume, makes it a 1960 model and the 21st 4Star Diesel made. After reading some other posts, I was hoping that it was a super because it has the chrome strip on top with the chrome V, but as I read further, it appears that the chrome and V were common to all 4 Stars. Since I bought it in pieces, I sure hope I have them all. Thanks again for your comments.

From my research it appears there were no 4 Star Super diesels. It looks like all 97 made were regular 4 Stars. Supers are called out for gas and LP tractors but none for diesel. A Super would also have a separate speedometer below the tach where your's says "Moline". That's a valuable tractor well worth investing in a nice restoration. Good luck!

Can you post a picture of it? I believe the Supers had the Tach and Speedometer, and the fenders were crown fenders like the M5s. Still is a nice rare tractor, Super or not....

OK, here are a few pics I hope. It has been under a tarp since I've owned it and I covered the engine with foil and a storage container as the tarp started getting holes in it after a few years. It does have the tach/speedometer but doesn't have the M5 fenders. Tag just says 4 Star. I wonder if supers said 4 Star Super?

I think the 4 Stars had the word Super on the 4 Star decal, but not sure what the tags said on them. What year is it? (yes mean the tractor.. :)

I will try and get a picture of it and post it. That is something I need to learn how to do anyway.

I would think the sheetmetal is the least of your problems. 206D motors are very hard to find parts for. Been there done that!
