My grandpa Robert Sweeney and myself bought this tractor January of 2021 as a project. It turned out to be alot of time spent together and alot of family members help. We originally intended it just to be a farm tractor but we couldn’t let it be. We took a year and a half to complete this Farmall M-TA and now we love showing it off. It has been to the mackinaw bridge and crossed it twice. After countless trips to Steiner Tractor Parts and finding all of the missing pieces we are happy with the final result. I would work on this tractor in the home shop during the winter and grandpa was always coming down and checking on me making sure I was doing what was right. Just goes to show family and tractors belong together and boys love their toys
