It reminded me of how GM saved the first Pontiac that they produced, and lost track of it for decades only to find it when they were cleaning out an old warehouse. I know that NYC has a museum of all its old police cars, but it isn't open to the public.

I'd love to have an old restored L or a McCulloch tractor like those.

Pretty cool article. Wonder if they thought to create a thread here while looking for models to restore?

Apparently they don't look at any of these tractor forums, nor do they reach out to customers because I never knew they were looking.

There’s something “stinky” about that story tho’…. if the Amish farmer painted it green…. show me a speck of green paint anywhere on it. :cautious:

Here’s one proposed tractor model they’d likely rather forget about…

I am certain that every part on the restored tractors was sandblasted clean, primed multiple times, and sanded to perfection prior to the color coat is applied. Most likely it is a base coat clear coat paint job. This is why it is so expensive to do a ground-up restoration on a car, truck, or tractor.

Minneapolis-Moline's 1938 UDLX Comfortractor combined a car and a tractor, just not with much success
