The tractor was a prize possession of my Dads and one that he bought at auction. It was not built by my father, but he was so impressed by the construction, he bought it. The PA winter has allowed it to rust, since it had unknowingly been uncovered. The tractor ran and was able to hold the operator when my Dad parked it, so I would assume some cleaning and minor effort should be enough to get it back to running condition. Currently on a trailer in Latrobe, and is planned to go to a local antique engine auction soon.
