Attached are some older pics of my tractor and the family history that goes along with it. I hope you’re able to use this info. I was going to take some new pics but it was storming this weekend. I have also included a pic I took of the A and a 1948 Farmall H owned by my brother-in-law, both were purchased new in our family, as we loaded to go to a tractor show this month. As you can see, the A is still looking good.Dale Lambert

“This is our 1948 CO-OP E3 that is within a few serial numbers, and identical to the one, that mechanized maternal grandfathers family farm in May of 1948. It took 7 years to find one that fit the bill and almost 2 years to restore it. The tractor underwent a complete nut and bolt restoration from 2017 to 2019, in honor of the late Gerald M. Sales of Clarissa / St Cloud, Minnesota, bringing in a new era of farming. One of the finest examples of an early E3.”-Oscar Ginz

“This 1935 John Deere was purchased by my parents in December of 1934 at Brink Implement in Edgerton, Minnesota. They traded four draft horses in order to complete this purchase. The tractor came from the factory with four steel wheels. My dad refitted the tractor to rubber tires and new rims one year later. A Behlen 5th and 6th gearbox was added later. This enabled the tractor to have a relatively high road speed for that era. This tractor has always remained in the Walhof family.”

“This Cockshutt was purchased in Sterling, Ohio in 1957 by my wife’s father. I began dating her in 1962 and they were still using it. Her father passed away in 1969, and the tractor was sold at that time.
Jump ahead to 1988, when one of my wife’s cousins saw a tractor that he thought looked like theirs sitting in a field near Cleveland, Ohio. My wife’s brother, who was living near Middlebury, Indiana, went to investigate. He was able to identify it as their tractor (from a photo in 1966) showing a large y-shaped scar on the nose cover and the placement of a fire extinguisher on the left side.
My wife’s brother bought the tractor and took it back to Middlebury, Indiana and had the engine repaired. He moved to Colorado in 1992, and that’s when I received the tractor to finish the restoration.
I went through 4 different buyers of the tractor to track down the original wheels, which I found and bought back from someone in Mt Vernon, Ohio. One of the first buyers of the tractor had sold the wheels and put Oliver wheels on it.
Well, my intentions were good, but it has been sitting in my shop since, so last Fall I decided it was “Now or Never” to restore it. I finished it during the Covid-19 outbreak last April. It will now go to our daughter and son-in-law who live near West Liberty, Ohio. They live on a farm there and will be able to show the tractor at Fairs and Shows.”

Story and photo submitted by Martin Thompson of Gore, Southland, New Zealand.
Pictured is Trevor Thompson’s 1947 Case DEX (export) built in Racine, Wisconsin and exported to the South Island of New Zealand.
The Case DEX is similar to one of the Case D models my grandfather farmed with but sadly all three Case tractors he had were sold long ago and most likely were scrapped.
My mother and I bought this tractor as a project for my father and I to do and only told him after we bought it and had to pick it up. It was a bit over 5 hours from where my parents live.
When we bought it, it was suspected to have a blown head gasket but as things go it was far worse than that with bent and stuck valves. Sadly someone had been at it before and their work was far from good.
We had some problems with the new head stud so this tractor now has head studs from a BTD6 International fitted. The radiator needed several leaks repaired but was otherwise in useable condition.
The hood and fenders were sent to a panel repair shop to be straightened and have rust removed, while we continued with doing the mechanical rebuild. The Case is painted with two pack automotive paint supplied by the panelbeater (auto body mechanic) so should stay looking good for a long time.”

“On a snowy January morning, my late 1953 Farmall Super M rests in an open bay in an old granary. About 25 years ago I’d owned another late 1953 Super M, not restored but otherwise very similar to this one right down to the grille–which is sort of a cross between the typical M/Super M grille and the one used on the Super MTA, and was apparently only used on very late- production at the Rock Island plant. For years I regretted selling that other tractor, so when this one came up for sale 10 years ago, already nicely restored, I couldn’t resist it. It’s been my go-to tractor for general hauling tasks ever since and made for a classic scene on this wintry day.”

“I purchased my Allis Chalmers WD that I found in Wisconsin because it had a factory loader. At the time I was living in Livingston, Montana and needed it for snow removal and landscaping after we built our home. This baby did the trick! Our 4 year old granddaughter loves to dig and scoop with the tractor too. The WD is back in Wisconsin as we sold the Montana home and moved back to be closer to family. I’m sure she will serve us many more years with parts from Steiner Tractor!” – Marc Dietsch
