1949 Cub

Postby CTDrew » Wed Mar 23, 2022 3:05 pm

This tractor has been on the farm since the early 1970s when my grandfather bought it to trim the field edges with the sickle bar. It has had a rough life on the farm, spending too much time outside and in leaking buildings. We moved it to the mechanic shop today from the storage barn (where I took the pictures). Planning to repair and revive but not restore and use as a cultivator machine for about a half acre of vegetables and flowers.

You have the right idea in mind.
There are two ways to get enough Cubs. One is to continue to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less.

I agree, that’s a very nice patina!

I have one cub with a fair amount of exposed metal on the hood/tank that was prone to surface rust. I was not planning on painting it, so decided to try what some folks have used...FLUID FILM. It's available at Lowe's, and I just sprayed it on, then wiped it for an even coating with a clean rag. It does NOT stay sticky, or attract dirt/dust, and lasts for quite a while, before a quick spray/wipe restores it.

It does darken the color a bit, but I really like the rich patina it gives.

I've been looking for a '65 Ford F-100 recently. I saw a sales ad where the truck had been left in patina, but they shot a semi-gloss clear coat over it. Probably a common treatment, but the first time I had seen it. A well loved Cub finished that way might be pretty attractive!
