Emory's Christmas tractor.  He was heartbroken that I didn't have room to bring it to the Big Show this year.

I love to  see the before and after pictures because to me it shows the love we all have for these :wh: tractors. From my experience with only one totally complete there is countless hours of time between before and after. I Love every minute of it.

Great thread @ezeastside!!!:handgestures-thumbupright: There is an amazing love affair with these tractors. They are really a unique machine when you realize that in their inception and the first several decades, they were a family owned affair—the American Dream.  As I have spent more time on this site, I have seen how much they mean to so many for a variety of reasons.  It also seems like no one can own “Just One” for any length of time without purchasing another and another and another—Right @WHX20:ychain:

Some have a long standing history with these tractors like @Lane Ranger and @travlindave and others, as we see weekly, have just bought their first one!  To see the passion that you guys put in to restore, refurbish, modify, and patina these little red machines is really cool!  I’ve already enjoyed this thread and hope that it continues to grow as more and more members find it and or finish projects...

One of the rarest surviving GT’s out there!  

Dan’s got a cool story about it too! Mostly covered in the above link—thanks for posting Craig!

:text-yeahthat:The coolest thing is the differential. There are separate drive belts to the rears arranged so that when you turn the wheel it loosens up a belt on one side allowing the wheel to free spin! Unbelievable thinking for the day.

Thank you! It was the most difficult resto that I have done so far.

 

Thanks to Craig for posting the link to the resto.
