Rob,

I like my '56 Economy very much also.  I need to clean up some details on mine.

What's you next move, Rob?

I'm going to be making a trip to NC to pickup a '49 Economy with an AEH. Probably in Feb/Mar of 2015.

I sold the Gibson Super D.

Chuck

Hi Chuck,

 

It's interesting to me that your '56 has a starter AND generator as well. I wonder when they went to a starter/generator combo vs a separate generator?

 

Glad to hear the Gibson finally got a good home and i can take that out of the back of my head. :)

 

I'm anxious to hear more about your new to you '49 with the AEH as my Deluxe model is the only AEH powered Economy I've ever personally seen. I see a number of Chainsteer's and a number of early 50's tractors, but I haven't seen many 49/50 tractors for comparison purposes and would love to see a few detailed pictures of yours. 

 

As for me right now, I don't really have a "next move" planned yet. I don't usually make plans anyway though as they always seem to change....I added more tractors this year than I planned so I figure I better stop the bleeding for a while. My plan for right now is to just tinker with the tractors I have at the moment. I'm finishing a Cub Cadet restoration and few other tractors with some loose ends that need tying up.
