Still has most original paint, the case has never been opened, and after cleaning and coating the fuel tank, rebuild the carb, plug, rotor, cap, wires, coil and points its running pretty strong.
I grew up on a few acres in California, my wife grew up on a hundred in North Carolina. We bought a house in California on five acres this last summer in what used to be the main farmland area for local farming when that was around. Right after we moved in I bought this tractor off a property that was just down the road. The man of the house had passed and they selling the property. Than man had bought this tractor new in 1948. I'm glad that this tractor has continued spending its long life of reliable service in the same part of town!
