Back in 2009 I rescued this forgotten 1950 CASE VAC. Got it home only to find the block and head cracked under all the caked on grease. So I took it apart to assess the damage and there it's sat since. Saturday after supper I went out to my shop to pickup tools and organize a few things. 8 hours later my tools weren't picked up but a tractor appeared out of thin air! I have 7 VA series and all but 1 are in my shop torn down for various repairs. This VAC I picked to join my 400 diesel to be rebuilt into a working tractor, that is with all the handy and user friendly options such as wide fronts and remote hydraulics. Here is a before and the picture from 2:30 Sunday morning! This tractor spent it's life cultivating corn. I have the cultivators and fenders, but I don't know if I'll cultivate with it anymore. It's getting pushed into hay raking, back blade, post hole digger and other chores.
