I don't think that I would ever have had more than a casual interest in old tractors had my Dad not got his father's SuperC for us. We just finished repainting and tuning up (it was still in working order). There is still a C at my Grandmothers that I can not wait to get my hands on (when I find somewhere to put it). My point is, like others have said, that the sentimental value is immesurable. I am so happy that you were able to find it after being gone over 20 years. Post pictures when complete. Congratulations. -- Martin

I have 3 of the four tractors that my grandpa farmed with whe I was a kid. I grew up on those tractors and paid more than they were worth to most people to get 2 of them back. You will be surprised at how many memories long forgotten will re-suface as you restore it and eventually began to use it again. A tractor is nothing but a machine but the bond that it can create with the past is tremendous. I hope to began farming the original 70acres of the farm with the original tractors in about 2 yrs. As for the forth tractor it was an H and was lost in a barn fire if I have been told correctly. As others have said the money you will spend is nothing compared to the value of the tractor as it means to you. Good luck and keep us posted. Farmall43

Great! I'm fortunate to have the '43 H my Dad bought new, as well as the M and SM purchased later. All three of these tractors have value to me beyond what they're worth to ANYONE else. Enjoy your restoration project!

Dave, there's something about a father's tractor that most people will never understand but the guys who responded do and so do I. I have my dad's M in the barn and its just as much part of my life as he was and that tractor bridges 53 years.Good luck with it. I have two H's , one is nearly completed in restoration terms. Where are you located? I got a lot of lines on used H parts.Give me a shout [ micsold@hotmail.com] Best wishes from Mike Soldan in Exeter Ontario

Great to hear this; now you have part of the family back. Enjoy the project through all of its phases. I am still hoping to locate my Uncle's Farmall M that I grew up on.

Congratulations Dave. You will enjoy restoring some personal history. My Grandpa's H is finally in my barn but I still don't own it.

Congratulations! You will never once regret the money you will spend on it to make it look new again. I have found my Grandpa's M, but have not been fortunate enough to get it home yet. Have fun and good luck. Bill {Antique Acres}

I have my Dad's "H" and it is restored and Iam working on his "M" they are very special,I think they have a personality but not all agree.I think of all the hours my Dad spent on these tractors making a living for our family.
