It sounds like a nice find.
As for parts, most are only available from other donor units. Our Site Sponsors, eBay, Craigslist are all good leads.
Please shoot a picture and help us know what we are talking about. We love to see tractors and the rescue units are just plain cool.

welcome to the forum. Our DB Suburban collector is Lauber1 and should be around this evening unless he is driving a overnight. Classic has one also and could relay some advice.
All the best.

well im awaiting pictures. Had a real rusted up bad one I took to Indiana that I thought wouldn't come back, but it did, so we shall see.
Here is the 61 Suburban Jeff is talking about working in my garden about a week ago. It didn't look that bad to me but I have been dragging them out of the weeds and getting them going again since '93. It had sat outside for about 30 years when I got it here but was complete,straight,and original. Wish I had pictures of my 1960 Simplicity 700 and how bad off it was when I drug it in from beside a pond where it had been picked apart and left rotting after years of abuse. My SS18 Sears that I am working on now is another example of a tractor that was in bad shape when I started. Parts are out here for the db Suburbans once you are in the db loop. I am up to 4 db Suburbans now. Two runners,two non runners. Just let us know what you need and we will help best that we can.

I'd love to see picts also ! I rescued this one (59) this winter and am working on getting it going.
Parts aren't easy to come by - but they can be found . You have to hunt a lot.

Now when I was younger I had a David Bradley two wheel walk behind with the dozer blade on it. awesomely powerful little tractor with only a five horse. motor. i used to skid small trees out of the woods with it to burn my workshop but I can't remember what if it had neutral or not. does the 59 suburban have neutral? sure pain in the asked to move around the garage though the gearbox is free and if I spin the pulleys the wheels will turn sorry about the upside down picture I'll get some better ones
