I kind of had the same dream, only difference was my dad has not gotten rid of his WC, it is still sitting in the shed. I took a look at it and tried to figure out roughly what I was getting myself into and then started pricing parts. Well to make a long story short, the old adage applied, ďif you have to ask how much, you probably canít afford it.Ē I donít mean to insult you, maybe you can and I really hope you can, but like the other guy said, make sure you are doing it because of your love for the tractor and your love for dad. Because if you look at it as an investment, it isnít a good one. I still have the dream and maybe someday I will have the money. Thinking about it the one thing I do have are the memories of dad on that tractor and to be honest I canít look at an AC without think of him. Money canít by that. I hope you can do it for dad.

If it doesn't, you can start working on it a little bitty part at a time...rebuild the carb today, the mag in a month, the tranny next year, the rear end the next...after done mechanically, do the cosmetics...it may take 5-6 years, but it will eventually get done. If you want someone else to do it, I guess that is a whole nother story.
