  • 1936 F-12 Farmall

228 W. Rice St. Elmore, Ohio 43416.

I wasn't born yet when my dad bought his 1936 F-12 Farmall, but I do remember running it as I grew up. When their house was sold I towed it home with our car and put it in the corner of our garage in town. That was eight years ago. I finally got to it and started cleaning it up and then getting it running. Well, it finally happened after many hours and days of manual labor. It sure does sound good. Maybe one of these days it will be at the area shows. Until then, there is nothing like the sound of the old F-12.
