My Dad Gave Me This FORDSON

I want to share photos of my latest restoration. It's a 1923 Fordson my dad gave me about five years ago. I got it running, and took it to a couple of shows, and it made quite an impression, so I decided to restore it. Several hundred hours and three years later, it turned out to be a real gem!

I got so many nice compliments at the four or five shows I've attended, that I thought I should try to get it in a national publication.

Near home is a show that has inspired me over the years. I've had three or four tractors at the Lanesville Heritage Weekend in Lanesville, Indiana, during the last six or seven years, and am proud to show this Fordson.

Being a member of the Ford, Fordson Collector's Association has helped- me with the connections I've made, especially with Dan Zilm who gave me lots of information over the phone.
