This is my grandfather’s 1947 Case VAC. My grandfather retired in the early 2000s from dairy farming. Once retired, he was not very active, and my family knew this would be a problem. As a solution, my family purchased this tractor and presented it to him for Father’s Day. The plan was to help him restore the tractor, and he could then take it to the local fairs to show and pull it in the antique tractor pulls.
He pulled this tractor for many years and won many trophies with it. It helped him get out of the house and stay active, especially during the Summer months. Unfortunately, he is no longer able to use the tractor due to his age and health, so I have taken the tractor under my wing and started pulling it and having fun with it as he did for many years.

Great job on the restoration! My father-in-law’s tractor, a Farm-all C, is in my possession now. In his later years when he couldn’t farm anymore, he took it to parades also and pulled floats with it in Massachusetts.
Like you Brad, I will restore the “C” too!
Great picture and keep on pulling!
