1957 Farmall 450
Acquired in 2011 and sold in 2017.  Was highly restored a real gem.  Used as
part for the Hay harvesting program — tedding, raking, pulling hay wagons and
backup for baling.  Also, a great parade and show tractor.
Purchased a newer John Deere 5520 Ag Tractor for the Hay business.  
Needed a tractor large enough to run a larger discbine.  So, the 450 became a
hobby tractor seeing little future use.  We love the old Farmalls and still have
an original family purchase 1952 Farmall Super C.
