The top 2 pics are my 1971 GMC AKA The Green Machine. I just got new tires on it
Then its my 1968 YEO. I hope this to be my next project after the M
Next its my 58 350 and 47 M
My 350 my gpa bought just to have a project to do i guess. he ended up givin it to me when i was
bout 5. So you can say i been around RED all my life. Before the 350 its was an H and 450 i would sit on and pretend
to drive. Then my gpa sold the H and 450 :(. The 450 was a 58 and it was the only tractor my gpa bought new.
Ill tell you a little story bout it. Ok my Gpa was born in Savanna IL(Ya pretty close to Moline for you JD nuts).
Well he grew up on a dairy farm and used horses(HE hates em to this day). They would always have a tractor but great
gpa would always so No were usin the horses. So they had to use the horses. Well the 1st tractor my gpa bought was from
great gpa. It was a Massey Harris 44 Special(Which he said was notin but Junk). He owned his share of IHs after
that. Then came the 450. My Gpa bought the last new 450 from that dealer(it was when the 60 series IH came out
when he bout it)My gma told me she remembers when he brought it home my uncle was bout 4 lookin at it through the window comin
up the drive. When i was bout 4 my dad was bladin the drive wit the 450 and i was lookin out the window at it then.
Well years went by and my Gpa had to quit farmin. You see my great gma had rickets when she had my gpa so it caused
his leg bones to grow funny. So my Gpa sold the 450 to my Aunts bf at the time(now my uncle)and moved to Pinckneyville
IL. He went into the feeder pig business there at the hog barn in Conant IL.(which aint even a town) Wasnt a year
later gpa was back farmin. Well my Uncle sold the 450 to someone and that guy sold it to someone and my gpa tracked
it down and bought it back. I would love to have the original 450 my gpa had.
The M he bought for me to repaint. It gonna get modified a lil bit. Gonna put flat top fenders
for girls to ride(if there is any) put duals on it and maybe some day a turbo. Right now its in the shop apart gettin
repainted. It has and M&W hand clutch which is like a live power take off.
The Last pic is all of our IHs i will try to get more pics sometime.
