i believe that show was called American Restoration by Rick somebody:dunno: i believe i fell off my lazy boy that night that show aired:banghead: some of them people godly amounts of this :gizmo: for such far out projects, and all i wanted was a lonely old Pepsi machine redone-jeepers. wife would never ok it:nunu:My Gravely's would probably get upset at having to share the shed with the David Bradley! :laugh:
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! :laugh:
Good luck on the sale! They are neat old tractors.
:bigthumb: sure u would take that amount wouldn't ya:mocking: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.:lol:
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.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.:lol:
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.
