My Dad bought one just like it new in '39, I learned to drive in it in the '50's. I got a D2 in the '60's and eventually put a 241 Red Ram hemi in it but that's another story.....

I see it's been upgraded to sealed-beam headlights. My D2 had a chrome bumper and windshield frame, and two wipers. Those sixes are pretty straightforward to work on and are pretty tough as long as you don't over-rev them.

Hey Snappy, If you can find me a left side running board for a d-35, a d-30 is to small, That would guarantee Your name at the top of the six-speed special sale list.😁

PS you are there anyway because I know it will go to a good home.

OP sorry for the hijack.

Dennis - 

I've never looked so hard for a running board before. :)   I know a couple guys who have connections out west which I'll alert them to the cause....  So how's this D-35 coming along?  What about a picture or two?

Here is my D-30 a couple years back... unfortunately she's still in the same state for the moment.  Hoping to get her on the road this summer.  Had an issue where I now need a different radiator.  Know of any good radiator guys in the Ohio - PA area?

Let me know if your uncle wishes to part with any of them if he's still their caretaker?

I have a Green Diamond engine from a 125 SP combine if anybody is in need of one.  (believe it is a GD 233---239 cu in?)

Feel sure engine is stuck--------combine never was run much, but was on propane.  Should be pretty clean old engine on inside.  Am thinking this engine will swap into the trucks discussed in this thread??

In the early '60s, I cut the combine down to the frame and made a mobile hoist out of the frame.  Just used ocassionally around the shop.  Last used it in early '90s------engine was running great.  Tires rotted out------just quit running it.

Am getting ready to pull engine, driveline, etc and make a trailer out of it so to run winch off of tractor hydraulics.

Engine and transmission will go to scrap yard unless some of you might want it for one of your trucks.

Hate to haul something like that off-----but I am trying to clean my shop yard up a little before this old codger "catches the train".  Can't keep everything and can't carry it with me!!!

I and others would hate to see it scrapped as well.

When you pull it post up.  I may know by then if I need something.
