Nice work Mitchell. Mine doesn't look near as good as yours. Someday, hopefully soon, I'd like to restore my 140's along with the 120's, but right now I need to concentrate on keeping my wife happy with a new kitchen.

Beautiful restoration, thanks for sharing

By the way, I took out your personal contact info, web bots & crawlers look for that stuff. Best to use the PM feature.

Very nice tractor. Great job on the restoration. 140's are a favourite of mine but there are none to be found up here.

After looking at the pictures for the second time.....if someone saw the finished product they would think it was a brand new tractor that just came from the dealer. Nice! :thumbs:
