It's difficult to tell from the picture, but if there are some rusty spots and chipped paint, you will likely have to clean them real well and at least spray some paint on those areas. If you're going to do that, why not just clean the entire tractor and paint the whole thing? It'll be ready for the Fourth of July parade then. You can impress all of your neighbors, too.

Whatever you decide to do, enjoy your old tractor. I love my collection and ride them just about every day.

60 years has probably left some tarnish and discolor of the paint. Proabalby would be a good idea to rub it down with rubbing compounds to remove the surface film or oxidation. Polishing coumpound will work if the surface oxidation is not excessive. Then polish or go to the wax for a top coat to bring out the shine,

Today's Featured Article - Tractor Traction - by Chris Pratt. Our first bout with traction problems came when cultivatin with our Massey-Harris Pony. Up till then, this tractor had been running a corn grinder and pulling a trailer. It had new unfilled rear tires and no wheel weights. The garden was already sprouting when we hooked up the mid-mount shovel cultivators to the Pony. The seed bed was soft enough that the rear end would spin and slowly work its way to the downhill side of the gardens slight incline. From this, we learned our lesson sinc ... [Read Article]
