Tractor Stories – 1951 Farmall Cub

Cub 1

I am the proud owner of a 1951 Farmall Cub. This tractor came into my possesion by me trading my fourwheeler and the reason I was so eager to do this was because this is the same year and model that my Great-Grandpaw Bearden owned. Me being 18 at the time of purchase had the honor of working on it with both my Father and Grandfather and was able to proudly run the two together side by side. I just wish more folks my age was into this sort of “hobby”. God bless you all and thank you for listening to my story.
