1956 Cub

Postby funeralweb321 » Wed May 29, 2019 9:45 pm

My Dad bought this Cub in 1973. It had a Danco belly mower we used for mowing pasture and also to mow grass at a foundry he did business with 3 miles from our farm. He was a foundry pattern maker if anyone remembers those. He died in 1999 and when I moved back to the area in 2005, I took possession from my Mom and restored it in '06. It sees occasional use for cruising to the town cemetery and back and giving the granddaughter a ride when she visits. That's my Dad sitting on it in 1998 shortly before his death. When I was chosen as Grand Marshal of the annual parade a few years ago, I passed on the ride in a convertible in favor of driving the Cub. It also works as a pizza carryout pickup vehicle on occasion.

Nice tractor, and nice story. You did your dad proud with the restoration and putting the old tractor to use.

Thank you. Notice how the draw bar looks a little cockeyed? Yours truly hooked a guy wire with it at the foundry. Almost flipped it over....almost. Thankfully I hit the clutch in time and the front wheels returned to earth. Decided to leave that part in the shed. Allons Blackhorse
