My other one's a Ferrari !

Last night Dave Hawkeye and I rescued this. We towed it home with Daves Grey Fergi on a fixed towing bar.









I sat on the non existant seat and was the steersmen. Brought tears to my eyes I can tell you !









Half way home, the tyre came off the rusty rim. That was fun, but we just carried on.









Now we've got it home, over the next few days, we'll get all the useful bits off it and the remainder will go off to the scrap yard. I love a bargain, we got it for nowt.

Looks right to me but you got no hammers in their

bodger before you scrap remember when its gone your one will need it

I'm getting whatever electrical stuff there is on it, a bonnet that the guy has kept in his garage and I now have two spare fuel tanks. I'm also going to take off the adjustable thingy on the back, I'm not sure what you call it but as you say, there's bound to be something.

Its just ashame that all the tyres are crud.

The tyres are a shame, the arms are  implement arms. when you got what you need/want I would think checking out people with those tractors to see if you can sell parts as they are getting old and if like here harder to get.

Great little tractor in their day.

Surely that's should be - "My other one is a Lamborgini" as they actually do make tractors.

A nice little restoration project for those winter months

Goodlife, In order to keep this one going, this is the tractor that my scrapper is selfishly going to sacrifice itself for.

my thoughts too
bodger

Having taken everything off for spares that we could think of, we weighed the tractor in yesterday and got £132.00 for it. They deducted £22.00 from that total for the disposal of the tyres.
sod

Thats good for the left overs, we have same tyre thing here so keep them for silage stacks
Border

110 quid was a pretty good return, considering your out lay.

Plus you saved a few bob on spare parts.
12Bore

I think you did rather well out of that, mind you £22 to add the tyres to the pile...
