While I grew up on a farm and have always enjoyed antique tractors I had no idea as to the model of this specific one. I knew enough to know it was a Farmall but that is where my knowledge ended. So I asked the man who knows all the answers, my father. When I asked him what it was, he snatched it from my hands and began to turn it over and over. Then in a tone that seemed to communicate the utter simplicity of the identification, he told me it was a 560. Why? because of the 2 point hitch and the six cylinders that separated it from the similar 460.
This restoration is going to go beyond just repairing the front wheels. I will be repairing the steering, replacing the other missing parts, and giving it a new coat of paint.
Next we will stripping off the old paint as well as finding or making the missing pieces.
