I posted awhile back about my Great Grandfather's tractor that had the rear end seize up in the early 70's and sat in the fence row. My parents tried to buy it from my grandfather and he would not part with it. My mom bought it at the estate sale in 1990 and just had it restored as it had been a dream of hers to have done. A driving force was that her brothers said at the auction you will never see that run which I guess is right as they have passed away. If you can get it and do not have the money to restore it but a place to store it then try and get it. Life circumstances can change and you might have the money some day.
