My 1952 Farmall Cub

Postby bibbster » Tue Sep 20, 2016 12:06 pm

Thanks to my dad wanting me to give this little Cub a new home, I'm the proud owner of a tractor that got a second chance. As I stated in my introduction post...

My folks delivered my 1952 Cub this past Saturday. It was purchased by our family about 27 years ago. My folks had to move and couldn't keep it so it was sold to a family friend about 20 years ago. My dad bought the Cub back (along with all the implements) a few months ago. My folks are on the move again so they have given me the Cub and am happy to be reunited with it after all these years. It is in pretty good condition with just a few things that need ironed out so I'll be diving into the books/manuals and picking everyone's brain once I get ready to tackle it. And based on what I have seen here on FC.com, I think I need to give her a name...stay tuned for that! :)

Looks like it returned home in good shape.

Bob, it sure did. There are a few little things here and there that need tended to but no major work anywhere. The implements aren't terrible. My dad and I restored them 20+ years ago and they are now in need of some TLC, including matching up a bucket full of bolts to each implement. Ugh.

Waif, thanks for the congrats. It is a fine little machine, though I wonder if you are talking about my station wagon and the hood of my '68 Mustang in the background? lol

Yeah, the garage is a work in progress. Unexpected concrete requirements ate into my HVAC budget, so it gets hot in the summer and cold in the winter.
Yep, fishing rods above the door and a bundle of them hiding behind the exhaust stack on the Cub. lol

Here is a pic of my dad after being reunited with the Cub recently and getting it running again.
