My name is Robby and I am a Fireman/EMT from the North Shore of Long Island. In my spare time I enjoy riding my Harley Davidson, working on my 1923 Model T hot rod and restoring antique horse drawn carriages, sleighs, and wagons. In my recent travels into New England, I came across a 1948 Farmall C tractor for sale. It was love at first sight. A few days later, my wife and I returned to Connecticut, loaded the Farmall C onto a trailer and headed for home. After four hours of driving, a heavy snow storm, and an hour ferry ride across Long Island Sound, the Farmall was introduced to our home. She is a little weathered but my intensions are to clean her up and get her running. In one day after purchase, I have ordered some paint, a new rear tire, and some parts that are missing. As soon as the weather gets a little warmer I plan to begin restoration.

Welcome to the forum Robbie. May this Farmall be the first of many (tractors that is). It is a chronic disorder.

Regards,
John
