I think Im going to come up to your house, slap you in the face, steal the tractor and restore it to its former glory. Thats degredation. I've been searching for one to rebuild for years. My grandfather drove me around on one when I was a kid.

idk about that. you should just probably clean it up nice. putting ford ranger stuff on it might look a bit dumb to be honest. but that just my opinion.....

If it wasn't for a business it'd be different. But you'll either look expensive or customers might not take your equipment seriously.

what model ford is it? just an FYI, you can get parts for them at the ford dealers, at least you can around here. we used to get funny looks walking out of the ford dealer with blades and belts for my dads ford tractor. lol i say keep it blue BTW, but its your tractor, do what you wish with it.

ya, lol. it needs a fuel pump, but because its so light, and with the carbs working right, that thing smokes the tires for ever. its hard to even control at full throttle. its almost as cool as his v8 blazer. lol
