  1. That's really cool. I hear ya about the body. This one has been taken real good care of ad there's still 2 little rust spots below the windshield
  2. It's got the 345 in it. It's a fun truck to drive and I'm getting 13.5 mpg with it on the highway commute to work. At 2500 rpm, it feels and sounds happy
  3. Got if from the original owners son. It will be my work truck. Already have my welder in the back and got all the material to build a rack. All stainless. Hoping to get some of the new slot mags from US wheel. They're 17x10. Thinking they'd look pretty cool and period correct
  4. I've had lots of older vehicles. Trucks I've built, swapped, flipped etc.. always wanted a cornbinder though. Found this one south of LA. Negotiated a time to make the trek and made a deal when I got there. 700 miles round trip to haul the beast home. It's a '70 1200D. 354, t-419, Dana 44 front, 60 rear. I've been driving it most days to work and love it.
  5. Thank you all. It was a fun project. Baled 106 and never mis-fired. Took a bit to get all in working order and timed right but it paid off. Just wish the field was bigger
  6. Got the old girl baling and tying wonderfully. My grandpa has owned it for about 50 years. Used his john deere A to pull the baler
  7. Could very well be. They look beautiful red but equally pretty gray too. I know I'll find a good spot somewhereon the machine where I can see a for sure paint color
  8. So maybe it was a custom painted tractor? Maybe. Hmm. The whole under carriage has remnants of red but not the main part of the tractor. It's odd. I have a pic I've saved that shows 2 tone. It's messing with my head
  9. That's exactly what I've read. I've seen your comments in other color topics too but this is a weird one. There are no other colors under the 2 that are on my machine. I don't know.
  10. Man, I've been looking for a TD35 for some time. My great grandpa bought one in '38 brand new. My uncle has it now. Always wanted one for myself. Very nice machine. ­čĹŹ
  11. Mornin´╗┐, ´╗┐fellas. I've read everything I can find on colors for the T20. Gray, red, yellow, green... Now let me ask you this. Is it possible that one could have been 2 tone lile the wheel tractors of the period? I ask because because mine looks to be very original, but, it has remnants of gray paint in hidden areas on the engine, trans and around foot pedal area and red paint on the under carriage. Weirdest thing. I was originally to going to repaint it gray as everyth´╗┐ing I've read saus 1936 and before are all gray then I've read all t20s were gray then some were red. I don't know. I got to thinking well, maybe some farmer wanted to match the wheel tractor he had and had them

  13. Finally had time to turn my new venturi today after work
