1950 Farmall H

Postby poppy1948 » Sun Apr 24, 2011 8:24 pm

Kind of made an impulse buy the other day. It needs to be cleaned up; needs new front tires, and a carb rebuild, but everything works and is mostly original. :{_}:

I think the H is my favorite "looking" tractor of all the larger Farmalls. It is kind of the epitome of tractors to me... I think you bought well!!

Thanks guys for the kind words.

The funny thing is that I had been looking at green tractors and kept running across red ones that were better deals. This one cost me $1700 including delivery of 100 miles one way.

The first tractor I ever drove, of course, was our '48 cub, but the second tractor I ever drove was a neighbor's H. He put me on it to rake hay and I had a blast. :D
It was always in the back of my mind to recapture that feeling from almost 45 years ago. :-:-):

And it really is dirty; the horizontal surfaces just don't show in the pics. Plus I've got to make those tires look black. :!:

Decided to remove the hood to see what I could see.

I didn't really like the way the manifold and exhaust pipe looked, so I went to Wally World and bought a Krylon rattle can of BBQ & Grill paint.

Looks better, I think. :?:
