1947 Farmall H

On the way to a ride the other day I spotted this classic old row cropper and had to stop for a closer look.  Some people see cute little puppies and just want to take them home.  I feel that way about vintage tractors but since I have neither a farm or a barn to keep it in sadly I had to walk away from this one.  

By looking up the serial number from the rating plate I was able to determine this Farmall H model was built in 1947.  A fresh coat of paint really helps cosmetically but a close look at the smooth sheet metal in the pictures shows that this 68 year old workhorse was well cared for.
