This is my 401. This is the one that got me hooked. It came with a front reel mower and a snow plow. I was going to do a full restore on it but I have decided to keep it mostly original. The engine has been rebuilt, the trans has been gone threw, and the rims have been sand blasted and repainted.

The first picture is what it looked like when we entered Coles 61 Burban in the first tractor of the month contest. She has gone thru many changes but we never really liked the end result. This tractor had a ton of very deep pitting on it, especially the frame. It is now smoother than it ever was. I spent a week on just the frame work. The mods done were, lowering the seat and fenders, dual pipes, foot control throttle and a pulley change for a little more speed. I made a custom set of front slot rims and I made my own leather seat cover. Other than adding the decals when they arrive this one is finally the way it is going to be! (I really don't mind this one without the decals) She is loud and proud!

Don't really have any other nice pics of just the tractor, so I guess this will have to do.  Here is my 1961 401 during a local Memorial Day parade.

Here is our all original 401. We found this tractor outside of Detroit Michigan on Craigslist from the original family. They had bought it used when it was only a few years old at the time. It was last used in a small air plane hanger to pull a small plane around by the uncle of the gentleman we bought it from. He had passed away leaving it to his daughter & husband who kept it untouched in their garage for 7 years before selling it to us. This tractor has an interesting story & was well taking care of its whole life. The last picture  when we picked it up in Michigan from the original owner's son n law. We made some small changes with front wheels & all 4 tires since it didn't have the correct/original wheels on the front. We wanted it to look as original as possible, but we like the ag style tires on the rear better. Other than that it's 100% original. We plan on bringing this to the Wheel Horse Show in June, which will be our first time bringing a tractor. Can't wait!!
