looks pretty solid from the pic. Have you figured out what your missing. Is the hood in good shape.

The wiring system is gone. The coil is bad. The lower grill is missing. The upper grill is broken out.

What do you need? You can fix it up as a dedicated tractor to whatever you need or want. Good Luck, Rick

I'd look for another one with the parts you need and make 1 good one out of them.

You said the coil is bad. Have you verified that?

Lower/upper grill is an issue, but if the engine runs, you might have fun making custom tin for it. Here was one at th last show that was re-done to look like a TO20 Ferguson Tractor.
