I have had the same interest, Having restored six tractors of my own.
I farm and have a mechanic that is retired and a painter that is retired. We have put our heads together for some time. The problem in my area is interest, guys like to look and dream but no one wants to spend money.
I Have tracted expenses on all my restos they are museum pieces and expenses are between 30,000.00 and 60,000.00. Engines rebuilt, rear ends gone through, tires,rims new,anything wore is machined and rebushed,Automotive quality paint,
and all the hours I spend on enternet and salvage yards trying to come up with oem parts and keep original look is not counted.
A gage to your success will be the response I will get here as to expenses. I know I'll get beat up but those are my exact expenses backed up by reciepts and ledger on my own restorations.
Now, I know if your doing this exclusivly you will find ways to do it more effecient and if your doing one particular brand you can do it more assembly line. But you'll be surprized how all those little reciepts add up.
Good Luck, Tony
