I just thought I would share with everyone the project I am about to start in the next few weeks.  My nephew came to me around Christmas with the idea to restore a tractor in memory of my little man Kase.  I thought about what to do for a few weeks and then it dawned on me to restore what he was named after.  Back in 95 I bought a 1936 Case RC from a neighbor and at the same time my dad passed on an EXCELLENT original condition one owner model DC for CHEAP!  We have always regretted not buying it and I have always kinda wanted one anyway since then so it was the perfect tractor to look for.  I did a quick search and found one for sale not to far from us and dad and I went and picked it up on friday morning.

 

It's a 1952 model DC with a hand clutch, Eagle hitch, and live hydraulics and live PTO.  We have a big show at Penns Cave every fall that we attend and this year they are featuring Case tractors.  My hope is to have it finished in time to unveil my "Kase" DC at its first antique show.

 

I put up two pics of it as it is now and one of what I am hoping it will look like when done.

Very nice.  I always liked that style case. They sure have a nice sound, and are a blast to drive. :thumbs:

That's not a bad looking tractor now, I can't imagine how good it will look when it is done.  The Eagle hitch just adds to the collector value. 

 

If you need parts, I am a dealer for antique tractor parts, also, including restoration decal sets and all that sort of thing.  I also can get some Case magneto parts... on a good day.

 

That will be a special tractor for you.  I'm looking forward to pictures.

That will be a nice remembrance. Friend of mine has a Case SC I've driven a few times. Nice tractor.
Yours has the Hitch and a set of OEM wheel weights.
Fwiw, those front rims are heavier than they look and there might be a 50# chunk of steel in front of the radiator. If yours has it, it's a finger pinching son ova gun. Be careful.

That DC Case is a pretty good tractor. My Dad had one, converted the clutch to foot control and mounted a 6ft International Flail mower.

The mower made the front end light. He took the discarded bumper from my brothers 41 Chevy Convertible Custom and poured it full of concrete and mounted on the front. Then did a lot of custom mowing in the area.

I'm more of an IH guy when it comes to the big tractors, but those old Case tractors with the "Chicken Roost" steering always intrigued me.

With 20 tractors at the farm this is one of three oddballs in a shed full of RED.
