Yesterday I was talking to a close friend of mine who works at the local scrap yard, and he mentioned an old Case tractor that was being brought in. I told him to get me some photos when he went to pick it up. Turned out to be a very nice, original 1938 L Case. Brand new front tires and wheels. Sheet metal almost all in very good condition. Good back rims, and back tires are about 50%. Was able to get some info from the owner that it was running just two years ago and had been taken to the Chilhowee, MO antique tractor show at the time. Her husband had recently passed away, and she had been selling off his entire collection of antique trucks to the scrapper. Broke my heart to here that most of the old trucks were rust free and in good ocndition. The Case will most likely be for sale, as I don"t need it really. I just did not want to see such a good tractor get crushed. Good day I would have to say.

Good for you for saving that L. Someone will be very grateful for your efforts. I'm curious what kind of trucks and what age were sent to the scrapper? Thanks for the good deed. Don

Apparently she didn't think much of her husband's hobby!! Or is just plain stupid.

I sure was wishing that I could have bought a lot of the old trucks. It was heartbreaking!
