That is one sweet looking tractor! Nice job! :thumbup1gif:I didn't actually "restore" it, just cleaned it up, fixed it up & repainted it. Dad's 1958 720D, ES, he bought it new in 59, as a leftover. He went to order a 730D, they had this one left, so he "didn't see any reason to pay $800 for a bent steering shaft"! ~~ Lowell
looks as if you used it some , you run the tires plum off it . those are neat tractors hope to see it finished some day . i started to redo a tractor that was my grandads a few years ago but it was just to bad . the block had froze and busted water had got in the rear end and froze and it was busted . it was a massey harris 44 special .I'd love to restore my Grandfather's old model 60. I don't want it in showroom condition because that's not how he'd have it. It's meant to be used and worked. So I'll get it working perfectly and straighten out the sheet metal and give it a paint job, but not a meticulous museum quality paint job. I don't want to be afraid of scratching it. Maybe I'll set it up for local tractor pulls. There's a lot of that around here and that would be fun. I think my Grandpa would like that.
Here's the day I "rescued" it.

Here she sits patiently awaiting her turn in the garage.

Terry here is an LA that I've had since 1972! It came with the original 1 row planter, belly mount sickle bar mower, cultivator and plow.I guess it would have to be a L or LA. Also a 40 would be on my list, or maybe a H or a M. Love the smaller ones, but the biggest I would go would be a B. Now the 320s and 420s would be nice also.....It looks like just about anything John Deere.:laugh:
Exactly what you have there. Always loved driving my grandfathers 4020 when I helped out. Second option is a wide front end 630 or 730. Something about the put-put takes me back.
