Are those pickup heads on the combines?  I can't say I have ever seen that before.  I have seen pics of the pull combines with pu heads but not self propelled.

Some more pictures the certain death 3 wheeler. The JD tractors and 1586 getting ready for spring my brother and I terrorizeing the garden with the cub cadet. My favorite is the Hereford calves they would sneak out between building and fence end. The building was original house on farm my grandpa moved and made into garage. If you look at the cub cadet picture a hired man made us a miniature barn for Christmas one year so we set up our toy farm in the garden.

Neat pictures. That 500 8 row planter would have been a heavy beast. Dad had a 500 8 x 36 vertical fold planter but it had rear assist wheels.

The 4020 only ran it 2 years about  2500 acres. Dad then put a add on 3pt on 1586. We used it one year on 8630 with blade then we ran it a lot with neighbors 1086 and dads 806 we put 3 pt on. Last years we used it on 4020 again . 2005 and 6 .

That's my dads turbo 806. Yes we still have it . Has a 66 series cab on it now. But we have the egging cab and fenders for it yet. I want to put the fenders back on. That tractor has been on the farm since new in 67. My grandpa bought it new have a few more pictures to put up tomorrow. The farmhand loader in yellow truck picture is actually mounted in that picture.

My grandpa on my moms side bought it new a 59 gmc. there are only a few things dad ever sold . The 1586 , that truck and 815 got sold during the mid 80s . I couldn't think why it didn't have a white rim on front and I remember we had just mounted spare tire and rim before picture was taken. It had a 305 gmc straight six would haul 385 bushels of wheat.

I really like seeing pictures with the old hip roof barns.  Kind of an era that is coming to an end with so many in disrepair, wish I could have been around when many of them were built

My grandpa actually built it himself mostly in 1947 or 49 .  so it isn't that old. Das still owns all the farm and barn is in really good shape but needs shingles or tin. He is up in age and doesn't have the resources  to fix the roof but in 3 or 4 more years I will fix it .But I have 7 other siblings to buy it back from then. There were pictures of my grandpa building it years ago but they are gone now. My grandpa bought this farm in 1943 and it was homesteaded by others in around 1910.

Awesome pictures. Thanks for sharing them. I to love that old GMC. 

Drove that truck a little but it left when I was 14. Dad has a 49 chevy his dad bought almost new after their neighbor bought it and wouldn't fit in shed. Dad farmed about 1500 acres with the 806 , 900 case and f gleaner plus those two trucks until he bought the ihcs in 76 and 77. My 2 memories of the 59 gmc was we put a new short block I. It in front of little garage about 78 and dad was hauling wheat for the neighbor bachelors when I was about 3 and they had a huge dog we were scared of. He hauled the other neighbors durum in before that . Neighbor got 11 dollars a bushel for 3000 bushels in 73 or whenever it got super crazy. Dad didn't have enough to do so he custom hauled and combined

When I was a kid we had several of those older GM's. My dad bought a 64 Chevy tilt cab new. It had one owner. When he was done with it it went to scrap. So rusty it wasn't savable. My grandfather bought a 61 Chevy Viking new. It had several owners and has been scrapped as well. I saw it at the junk yard but didn't realize it was in the CUT IT UP section. A few years later my grandfather passed on. Made me think of his truck. Called the yard but they'd cut it up for scrap. And the third one I remember was a 55 Chevy 5700 Cab Over Engine style. All it ever did was shell corn. It was bought by a family friend with a John Deere corn sheller on it. My dad ran it for him and later bought it from the guy. And when corn shelling dried up it got sold. I know where it went. But as stated all it ever did was shell corn. And UNFORTUNATELY I don't have pictures of I'd share. Also not trying to hijack the post. Sorry if I did.

Here's what I drove in the late 90's. 1972 C-60. 427 with a 5 speed and electric 2 speed rear end. Also had air brakes and a air tag. It had two problems. Lucky to get 4 miles to the gallon. And that steel box was HEAVY. It would hardly be legal with 500 bushels of seed beans. Put around 140,000 miles on it before I outgrew it. A little newer than the trucks I talked about prior. But I liked this thing. Pretty neat old truck in my opinion. Wish we still had it. I guess they call it growing pains.
