Cool I've never heard of a Brilliant tractor. We had a pull type Brilliann seeder at the farm in the 70's.  I wonder if there's any connection

Interesting story, both yours and that of the tractor and Company. If you have any more history or information, I would love to hear it.

So will it get a full-on restoration or just get it mechanically sound and maintain the patina? Was it originally orange?

  I personally like the original patina.

 brochures of the tractors, they were painted a light bronze color and white ,the ones made in Ohio were red . I think Brillion bought garden - all

and began building tractors if you look at a Garden All Pup they share the same frame, and have other similar attributes such as their use of louvers and the big belt pulley and cable steering. Brillion built farm equipment  but was also a producer of other heavy iron products. I will go out on a limb and say I think they Garden All and Brillion were in bed together before Brillion took over, why else would the first brochure exclaim New for 62 Brillion has a garden tractor I think the 59 I have was made by Garden All but badged Brillion iron works.
