I can always remember my granpa pullin round his old cart with his case 444 and after he passed I inherited it, but sadly one winter plowing snow I accidentally hit it but it put in my mind that it is time in my gran dads name to restore it so here it goes. sorry I did not get a pic before tear down I was just so happy to be doing it!

Glad you decided to do this! Looks pretty decent and mostly surface rust, maybe.

Looks like a good project to follow. Thanks for rescueing grandpa's wagon. It actually looks like it's in good solid shape. Keep us posted with plenty of pics. Just in case I missed your first post welcome to the family glad to have you.

Looking much better! On that bend and straightening it, I will use some thick metal clamped forward & aft of the bend to work it back straight.

Looking good. Is your bed pretty solid too. This reminds me of my body work on these old gems. I had all kinds of things laying around getting a fender pan back in shape.
