Does anyone know if fenders were standard or optional on a 1952 Super C? I'm in the midst of restoring this old girl and don't want to add any beauty that wasn't there to start with.

You can buy new aftermarket for about $175.00 each plus bolts. That is what I was quoted by a local salvage yard.

If you have fenders that came with your tractor they are fairly valuable property. In my part of the country they bring as much as $300 per set. Bought a set at a salvage yard in 1984 and paid $25 for the pair. Bought a set from the same salvage yard in 1998 and paid $200 for them. If you have a set hold onto them if you think you may someday want fenders on your tractor. Who knows what it might cost to get a set 5 years from now.

They were optional; they look nice but make getting on and off a little inconvenient at times.

I have had a 52 Super C (can't remember the serial number right now)for 15 years. It's the handiest of all my tractors. I added a 3 pt. conversion. Right now we are going through it stem to stern and will be putting the rebuilt engine in soon.

An interesting thing happened this weekend; an acquaintance who is COMPLETELY John Deere drove a Super C at a show and was totally smitten by it. Never had any experience with Farmalls before but was amazed at the handiness and maneuverabiltiy. He contacted my son and asked him if he thought I would trade my Super C for a JD 50. Well, I have a JD and am basically color blind but no way to that trade!

Her serial # is 144430. Thanks I won't worry about looking for any fenders. I kinda like the open look anyway. Have you done any restoration work on your's?

Mine doesn't need restoring except for paint. It's pretty rusty looking from sitting outside for the past ten years. Fortunately for the tires, it was inside for the first 40. I got the wide front end and original tires, and they are like new. I was told from the guy I bought it from that it probably has less than 500 hours on it. The original owner became terminal the year he bought it, and it became part of the estate. The guy I bought it from bought it from the trustee about ten years ago, and didn't use it either. I had to replace the clutch pilot bearing and the graphite throw-out bearing, and replace battery and muffler. The rest is original including all wiring. I got the clamp-on sickle mower with it.

I think they were optional, but many Cs had them on.
