"I wouldn't be in too big of hurry to buy parts or even restore it (unless you need a big project)"
The original plan was to buy an old tractor for a piece of lawn art. (always looking for something to get under the neighbors skin)
I live in a suburban neighborhood and the neighbors aren't used to someone lighting up the tires on an old muscle car or seeing a prewar car being worked on in the driveway. (actually, i don't think any of them have ever seen a prewar car before)
Anyway, when I found the Cub, I new it was the one. Not too big, pretty good looking, runs, and had a snow plow
So, she will work during the winter every time it snows, while I put together a list of things needed to bring her back to her former glory
She won't get a full nut and restoration, but the goal is to take care of any basic mechanical issues (tune up, new wiring and anything major I may uncover) and make her pretty (new paint, emblems and replace the rusted metal (battery box, tool box and platform) all the sheet metal is in good shape
So far, I need the battery box, tool box, wiring harness (Think I will order from Brillmans) head lights (last owner took them apart to put in sealed beams and all I have left is the buckets) and emblems, they are all missing
A little tinkering tomorrow to see what else I uncover and I will post some more pictures
