What a great piece of vintage equipment. I agree, it has "cool" written all over it.

We still have no idea what brand this grader is. It has been sandblasted and primed. There is no name or identifying marks anywhere.
Can't really paint until the correct color in known.
I did run across another just like it at the tractor show in Macon, MO. in late July. Seems it was donated to their association a couple of decades ago and has been sitting in storage since. This year it was brought out for the show but when I talked to the official in charge he told me no one knows anything about it. It is black and silver as you can see but that was just put on to protect the metal from further rusting. There are many deep pits in the metal on this one so it has sat out rusting for an extended time.
