Jim I am TomVac's older brother Jerry and I am the one guilty of painting that tractor Desert Sunset. The tractor has been in the family almost since new. It is a 52 and was bought new by Frank Rossler. He traded it in after a couple of years and my great uncle Fred Wieland bought it and when he retired from farming in the late 1950's our dad got it.

In 1977 after I got out of the service I was going to a 2 year ag mechanics course at the tech school in Eau Claire and did some work on it and while there I painted it as you see it.

It is the tractor that the 6 Wieland kids learned to drive on. I do not know about Tom as he is the youngest but us older ones all drove it before we were old enough to go to school. Our dad used to do some custom corn chopping and combining and he ran the chopper/combine and would hook the VAC up to the full wagons and we would drive the tractor and wagon back to the buildings where Grandpa Henry would meet us. We would helped Grandpa unload the wagon and he would send us back to the field. The rules were simple - You can use the foot throttle but not the hand throttle and if Grandpa is not at the gate hit the kill switch. None of us was tall enough to run the controls from the seat so the seat was shoved all the way back and flipped up in the 'rain' position and we stood on the platform.

Jerry, what part of the country are you from? Frank Rossler and Eau Claire made me wonder if it was the Frankie I used to know. Thanks.

The family farm is between Menomonie and Colfax, WI on Hwy B (just south of Lake Tainter). Our great Uncle Fred's farm was where the Menomonie Area Airport now sits and Frank Rossler farm was a little further east on Hwy 12.

Good history Jerry. Seems most of on this forum with rural roots have had similar experiences.

Dad wouldn't let me go by myself on the SC until I could sit on the edge of the seat and push the foot clutch in (8 years old). Then I followed him on the LA pulling the AC turning plow with the SC and a Case 3pt. disk harrow. I would take the SC down our mile long driveway to get the paper on Sunday mornings before Mom and Dad got up too.

I learned to drive (about 6 years old) on a 1923 Model T Ford truck. Not allowed to put it in direct drive, just hold the low pedal down with my left foot and give it a little gas with the steering column mounted throttle, while he was always watching of course!!

Jim, take note of the Black hood decals. Looks like 30 series decals applied backward. I'm going to agree with a repaint to make it look newer than it is by a 2nd or 3rd owner.

At first before I noticed the decals I was thinking a left over model on the dealer's lot in '57 that the dealer repainted to sell along with 200b and 300b to make it look more "modern". These kinds of stories are always interesting to know the real history on if you could ever find out.

I like the looks of VACs in "two tone" Didn't much like the looks of DCs dressed that way though.

I think it's a one bottom Centennial. It looks like one I have except for the paint job. If it's a Case, there will be an eagle on it somewhere. Check the caps on the axles

Today's Featured Article - Antique Tractor Wiring Basics - by Curtis von Fange. One of the most neglected parts of old tractors is the wiring. After sitting in the elements for half a century or more much equipment wiring has deteriorated to sparsely covered strands of copper or other metal. Plastic insulation has cracked, mice have eaten through the older clothed style coverings and the exposed wires have reacted to winter moisture and salts by turning blue and powdery. Terminal ends have corroded, rusted or just plain evaporated away. Aged wires not only keep an engin ... [Read Article]
