This is the Super C I used on my grandpa's farm that hasn't been started as far as anyone can remember since I graduated college in 1986. It was stored in a shed all these years. I picked it up last Fall and brought it home. After a little work on the starter and cleaning spider nests out of the distributor cap we started it up. I didn't think it would ever start again so I was amazed at how it started then ran so smoothly. Now the real work begins to fix tires and get it freshened up so it won't rust out in the Pacific NW humidity.

Just celebrating!

Amazing, great that you are restoring it. Spent many days in the seat of a SC back in the 1950s.

Right on man. That's fantastic! Though not nearly as long a time, my dad's Farmall C sat for a few years after he died before I moved home and took it over. It was good bonding and therapy with my grandfather and me, to get it running once again. Needed fresh gas, a new rotor in the distributor (original had sparked a hole right through it), fresh oil and it was off to the races.
