That turned out real sweet. Wish I'd had that front hitch on mine I never could back anything with it.

I made a hitch to mount of the front of the Farmall C I've got. Put a trailer hitch ball on it.

Beautiful job. I'd almost be afraid to get it dirty. ;)
The neighbor took it to his farm. His grandson either drives it on the property or in local parardes.

I love free, the next best thing is " cheap ". Beautiful job on the N, are the rear tires new or cleaned? I wonder what people who are doing showroom restorations do with the tires that still have years of field life in them. Is there much traffic in used rear tires out there?

Tractor had 4 brand new tires on it when he got it. So they are the same ones in both pics. Just cleaned and spray tire wet.

If you look at the front here at the 2 shiney bolts. I took a piece of 1/2" plate. Torched out a cone shaped piece starting with the width of the plate the bolts are through. Came out about 10". That end is rounded like a cone. I put 2 holes for those bolts to go through, then a hole at the skinny end for a trailer hitch ball.
Hope this helps some. Couldn't find any pictures of when I had it on.
