WOW Great find!! 40 years under roof with the exhaust covered!! I gather the engine was not stuck? How good is the cooling system?
According to Aumann Auctions of antique tractors, buyers are paying premiums for old tractors in their original work clothes and in good working condition. Your C looks like it would "fit the bill".
I am sentimental towards the C Case. :(see pic and video link below) I grew up driving dadís 38 C Case for about 12 years in east central Kansas. It was 11 years old when it came to dadís farm. Then, it always sat outside and lost its paint. Dad made a side panel to keep the mag dry. No matter how cold or wet, pull the choke and it would always start on the 3rd pull of the crank.
The serial tag says CC so a previous owner had modified it. It looks like a C except the tall fenders were lowered. The rear wheels were cut down and the gooseneck changed to a standard wide axle.
Sorry about the quality of the picture taken about 1960 but it looked pretty sad then. Dad was ready to junk the 25 year old C in 1963. However, my sentimental attachment pleaded to keep it. Without asking dadís permission, I parked it in a rear corner of dadís old cow shed. It sat there for another 20+ years. In the cow shed, the panel over the mag had a new functionókeep the cow poop off the mag. LOL
Then I hauled it, and the 2 bottom plow it pulled, 500 miles to my place in central Illinois and fixed it up to look like shown in the video taken mostly in the 90s.
It stayed in our family for about 55 years. Neither of my 2 kids have the means or the desire to keep it inside so a distant neighbor with a big barn now has it along with many other old Case tractors. Maybe the junk man will have to continue to wait for another 50 years!!!
Enjoy the video. It got a set of 4Ē Al pistons and sleeves about a 100 hours of use before being parked in dadís cow shed. My paint job covered the rust but turned out too light a color after it dried. OOPS.
