Ben B 1933 Farmall F12

Little ol lady from Texas

Found this rust pile on Craigslist one Sunday morning. Looked like it needed a new home. After securing it from a nice older lady and hearing the story of the one owner machine I thought I would give it my full attention. I had been finishing a 66 Mustang for my wife but... We agreed we wanted to complete this tractor resto, so the lady could see her late husbands family tractor run and look new again. Two years later, with everything rebuilt or replaced with NOS parts (very little available) we rolled her out of the shop. The lady and her son were delighted to see the old work horse back to new. The son only remembers it rusty and as a yard ornament most of his life. Now it is living a quite life of a few shows and several trips around the yard otherwise parked with my 65 T-Bird and Mustang. She is a 1933 McCormick Dearing Farmall F12, with a very rare cast six spoke front wheel, made for about one month in 33. I have not seen another except an original factory photo. We love out old machines and are very happy with Hagerty's service and knowledgable car folks. Thanks!!
