I have a vintage tractor that was my father's, and it was my grandfather's originally. My father had always said he was going to get the machine back in running order, but he never got around to the job. When he died I took on the task, and after a lot of hunting for parts and a lot of man hours repairing the tractor it is as good as it will ever be again.
Now that I have it restored, I realize that I have no use for it. I have tried to sell in via the local newspaper, but haven't had any serious offers. If you are buying a vintage farm tractor to restore you should be aware that the average buyer is not going to want to pay you what the tractor is worth. I think holding an auction like mentioned in this article might be a better way to go. This might give me a chance of recouping my investment at least.
