    Well.....it is green....

    This is a 1926 Huber 32-45 that my grandfather bought right after the "Great Depression". He switched it over from steel wheels to rubber tires on rims shortly after he bought it. He started out doing field work with it and developed a "threshing business" which the neighboring farmers hired him for years using it on the threshing machine. Some years later it found it's way in a permanent spot on grandpas sawmill which is where it stayed until grandpa passed away in 1968, then my father brought it home, aired up the original tires, got it running again and re-painted it. This was around 1970.......fast forward to 1995.....the Huber had sat in the barn for all these years, dad retired, sold the farm and began restoring/restificating tractors ever since. The Huber got repainted by my son and dad found someone to hand paint the pinstriping, and lettering. This summer it is my goal to take it to a tractor show and maybe, with some luck, someone will let me belt it up to a threshing machine again.

    This old Huber will stay in the family, dad has it willed to me when he passes.....when I'm gone one of my sons will inherit it and I hope the cycle continues.

    If anyone is interested in seeing more of the Huber, I will take some more pictures and update this thread.

    That's awesome! Not only is it a cool tractor that you don't see very many of, but the family history really makes it something to treasure.

    I'd love to see any other pictures of it you'd like to share.
