Mrs. Rod dubbed this one the "Toasty Tractor." It's a Ferguson TO-30 and I suspect it's from 1954 based on the Continental Z-129 engine serial number (tractor serial number plate is missing). The prior owner added brand new tires, gas tank, battery and a few other odds and ends. I was surprised to discover it had the original Ferguson wrench in the tool box, original top link, PTO cover and even the hand crank! He wanted a motorcycle and sold it for the price of the tires but it's probably not worth much more.
Oddly enough, she starts and runs like a sewing machine without leaking a drop or smoking. The clutch, brakes, tranny, hydraulics, PTO and even the wheel bearings are tight as a drum. I'll give her a full tune up with new fluids and replace the old wiring. I may even look for some original headlights and side emblems in the tractor salvage yard but I really like her rusty patina. Tonight might be the first time she's ever spent the night in a barn in the last 64 years.
