Was really glad to hear that a very, very good friend of mine decided to let one of his prized possessions go.  This is a 1964 Wheel Horse 754.  There were only 421 made back in the day.  This replaced the 854 as they had a shortage of K-181's but had some K-161's to use up.  Needless to say it became one of the more rare 60's models tractor.  He purchased this at an auction and brought it home and spruced it up.  I am glad to have it in the stable to say the least!

Thanks for the comments guys!  It sure is a beauty and I plan on having fun with it.  It will go to shows, drive in parades, and be something the family and I can drive around out at the property.  There are a few small things that I would like to do to it over time.  Need to put my own personal touch on it and clean a few small pieces up.  My bucket list of tractors is slowly getting smaller. 

 

P.S.  She is tucked away in a much warmer place for the winter!  :thumbs:
