I've seen photos and I'm 99% sure it's a VAS, I'm only going on 1952 because that's when my mom said grandpa bought it. Who knows if there's some error in memory. I've never seen another one in person, just pictures on the internet. It is offset with a square seat, eagle hitch, pulley wheel, tool box, and handle crank. I'd have to look to find the serial number & I'm not sure the plate is still there. Yes, grandpa "burnt up" the pto digging holes with an auger for a fence probably in the 60's.
We do have a Case International dealer in town 8 miles away but I have no idea on parts availability for something almost 60 years old from a defunct Case product line. Also, I don't' have the funds or time to restore it.
If the opportunity or option came around to sell it at any time I was wondering if I should expect it to bring a couple hundred bucks or if some old guy would go wild at an auction and pay a couple thousand for a broken old uncommon tractor.
