Super A Paint-Original

I saw a post similar to this one not too long ago. I am getting a Super A and it appears to have its original paint although someone has redone the decals with paint. There seems to be quite a lot of paint left on the tractor. Do you guys think I should leave it as is or paint it?

As pretty as new paint is, I really prefer original even with the bumps scrapes and wear. That's the way I keep my SA. I used a scratch remover cleaner to shine mine up. Really helps the appearance. In choosing a cleaner get one without any wax in case you want to paint later. A tractor kept in a shed really does not need any wax.

I have a International 560 with original paint and am thinking about using a rubbing compound to brighten it up.----------- What do you experts think, will it work OK??????????

I'd be very careful what you use to polish the paint. Given the age of it, a rubbing compound may take the paint off. Try something that doesn't have any abrasives in it, like a clay bar or Meguiars Deep Crystal System Step 1 Cleaner. Whatever you use, try it in a hidden area first so you don't ruin the paint.

Thanks for your thoughts, I'll keep that in mind if it ever warms up here in NE IA so I can do something

Today's Featured Article - 1935 John Deere BN History - The History of My Tractor - by Alexander G. Knox. My grandfather, Orval A. Knox of Chandler, Arizona, affectionately known as Pa, purchased this tractor new from the John Deere/Caterpillar dealer (now Arizona Machinery) in 1935.

Knox, recalls Pa putting a mower on the tractor during the day and then ... [Read Article]
