These are my fathers 2 Farmall Cubs after our most recent storm yesterday. The left one is a 1950 and the right one is a 1948. The 50 has had the rear axel widened from another parts tractor to make it a 2 seater so he and Mom can ride together at the local show or parade. He also built the canopy which is run off the hydrolics and will tilt back for the nice days or go up for the not so nice ones. The 48 still gets used every year in a 1 acre hobby garden. He has several attachments for them. Both have been torn down and rebuilt and painted in the last several years.

Nice tractors!   Cool shade canopy & axle widening.  Shame they don't have a roof to sit under.  But, if it's a tractor OR more storage, then it's tractor!

The Cub was one of Farmall's most successful models and still a very good tractor even today.  I know a guy who swore he was going to go in business recreating a modern version of the Cub.  I guess that never materialized, but I did commit to buy one if he ever did it.  :D

Nice pictures. Thanks for posting them.

It'd be nice to see the convertible in action.

These tractors are only a few miles from me. When I look at the picture I said to myself , I know where these tractors are. So I look more and yes , a few miles away. Noel
