Article in Successful Farming on 806 #1

The article stated that the 806 #1 was restored by Frank Tomac, but I thought Ken Updike restored it and sold it to Richard (his last name escapes me)

A local elderly farmer who likes machinery trivia one asked "do you know what the first 806 was?" I said yep, narrow front gasser...  "oh.. you know that..."  Yep, I've driven it before!   "You what??" ...  ;)

Richard had it at Bloomsburg, first Roundup I ever attended, which is where I drove it.

502 was owned by Bill Borgoff and Larry Eppers, Bill passed away a few years ago, and 501 was owned by Ken and restored, then sold to Richard Lantis. Frank bid on the tractor at that last auction but I don't remember off hand who ended up buying it.
