Here is my 1962 Ford 4000 Diesel. The pictures in the shed were taken from where I rescued the tractor. It was given to me by a gentleman who owns the ranch. It was pretty used up and had sunken into the sand up to the axles.
That was 11 years ago. It took 2 years to find the missing parts and to rebuild everything. It had diesel engine rebuilt, injector pump and injectors rebuilt. All the gauges replaced, body work and paint, and new tires. It is like driving a time capsule. It runs like new. Only a few things left to make it perfect. I take it into town once a year to change the fluids. Loads of fun.
