Here she is on her maiden run. Restored by my 18 year old son Michael, as a "senior project," to fufill an outside-of-school project requirement for graduation. He also wrote an extensive term paper on the John Deere company, and will present this project and a speech to a group of judges selected from some local tractor collectors/restorers. Fortunately, she didn't require major overhaul, but did need lots of TLC on the cleanup, replacement of ignition parts, and sheet metal, as well as painting. Tomorrow the tractor goes to school for presentation in class. That's going to be a cold drive! Think he's done a very nice job. You can congratulate him at his email address: michaelp@montabella.com I grew up on a '47 B, and am thrilled to have one back in the family. This tractor origionally belonged to my wife's uncle - he passed on a few years back. She's thrilled that the tractor is still in the family. Michael, - he's having more fun than a kid ought to have! Here's to your memory Uncle Paul!

Michael, That's a top notch restoration. You should get an A+ for that school project. And thanks for the picture it makes a nice background on my computer. Happy Thanksgiving!

I think ANY youngster that can stay focused
long enough to accomplish this type of task
needs high praise and comendation. He and his
family have every right to be very proud of this
job and the boy deserves due credit.
Well done, young man !

That looks beautiful, what I can see of it. The picture is so dang big it's hard for me to see, especially with my little monitor.
