I haven't been following this forum but I now am trying to restore, or have restored, a Gibson Model D for my father's estate. Unfortunately the executor let it be neglected under a shed in south Texas for the last 15 years. Rotten tires and belts, corroded gas tank etc. It is in Bailey Colorado now running and moving. My plan is to use it to plow snow and help with some logging I do. Hoping to spend as little as possible of course but I would like it to look sharp and later find out how much it is worth to reimburse the estate.

Welcome! The Gibsons are not that common on here and that's one reason why we would like to see pictures of yours. That and just plain interest in tractors!

Welcome to the forum. That's a nice tractor, we' would really like to see it.

 

We're a little bit weird that way.

Hope the pics come out.
These are from the shed in s. Texas.
There isn't just one Gibson. There are 3.5 of them.
The
D
Super D
And
D2 are most complete. I think the 0.5 one is a lever steer A model but I'm not sure.
There is also a old model tiller (pic included I hope) and some old maytag(?) engines, one on a old lawn mower and several just separate. There is also a 0.5 complete Case farm tractor. No pic of that.

The Gibson is coming along. Running, new tires (ouch!). As always the problem is parts. I will have to go get the others from south Texas if I want to plow snow this winter.

I've been discovering new things with Tapatalk but I haven't seen either the Manuals or Galleries sections. Can I get directions?
