    My Gravely's would probably get upset at having to share the shed with the David Bradley!


    I was watching the restoration show on the History channel a while back. This is the show that was a spin off of "Pawn Stars". Some guy brought in an old David Bradley to have it restored. They quoted him 9 or 10 grand to do it and he went for it. All he wanted it for was to put-put around the yard to pull the grandkids in a little cart. Some people!


    Good luck on the sale! They are neat old tractors.

    Wow what did they do to it for that kind of money? This one isn't a $10K restoration. If someone wanted to offer that I wouldn't be opposed.

    I don't remember all the details, but it was mostly cosmetic. They might have had someone rebuild the engine. But they certainly didn't take it apart and meticulously rebuild it. They did build the little cart for Grandpa to sit on while he as at the controls of the tractor.

    I tried Googling the show for you but couldn't find it. I did find a couple of interesting threads about it though, including this one...
    https://www.smokstak.com/forum/showthread.php?t=120448

    Those guys said it was a $12k restoration!

    I never watched the show all that much - mostly just would watch it while I was taking a lunch break during the work day. They seemed like a bunch of idiots, including the main guy's kid. They don't really have any expertise in anything except sandblasting and spray painting. I saw one episode where they "restored" an old neon sign from some historic building in a little town. The townspeople raised the money ($15k??) to pay for the restoration. Just for kicks, I googled that episode and saw that the townspeople ended up getting their money back from the show because they screwed it up so bad and had to send it to someone else that actually knew what they were doing.

    We had one just like it growing up. My Dad filled the rims with concreate to make a dome. That thing would pull a house after that. This made it a potato planting machine. Grandpa modified the plow to make the hills for the potato's. When it was time to harvest , we used the field cultivator attachment to unearth the taters. My job at harvest was to drive the Ford 9N with a home made wooden box on the three point to haul the taters to the house for washing and send them down the coal shoot for storage in the fruit cellar. That is what Dad had all us kids around for was to work.
