My grandpa bought this H brand new in '49 in SW Missouri and farmed it fulltime until the late '60's. Grandpa was at the local Farmall dealer one day and said "I'd like to have one of those one day". He came home from working in the field the next week and there was the H, sitting in his driveway. So, he mailed them a check and put it to work right away. Once it was retired from regular work, it was parked under the lean too next to the machine shed, hooked to a John Deere #5. Grandpa passed about 10 years ago and I brought it home and stored it until I could work on it and had a place to put it to use. The engine was rebuilt not long before the old girl was retired and to this day it runs like a top. I remember roughly 25 years ago my brother and my grandpa pulled the tractor out and drove it around the farm, but then it was parked again. All it took to fire up this time was points, wires, battery and fuel. All the gauges and lights work and the generator still charges.
Something that's pretty cool is the serial number is 275000. :D
I still have the John Deere #5 and plan on cleaning it up and putting it back into service as well. I picked up a drag type 5' mower that will go be hind it soon. After we finish building the new house, I plan on pulling the tractor into the shop and pull it apart for paint, seals, etc...
