In 2019-2020 my junior year of high school, my best friend and I completed the restoration of this 1957 Ford 600 for a local competition. We made it to nationals and finished as part of the top twelve finalists.
The restoration took around 9 months with over 600 hours invested and many memories made. This restoration was a learning experience of a lifetime where we developed our mechanical knowledge beyond what we thought possible.
The tractor was later sold to a very kind gentleman who takes his new tractor ‘Anni’ out for Sunday drives and keeps in contact about her many appearances in parades. We couldn’t imagine a better ending for this restoration and can’t wait for many more to come.

Me and my husband are curious as to why the best friend, that helped with this tractor’s restoration, and is pictured with the tractor, is never mentioned by name. Seems like she should get some credit as well.
