Meh would be ok if the tractor was made in 76 but the 448 was made between 1980/88  446 in Yellow 1972/76 and Orange 77/88

 

 

Still doesn't look to bad other than the funky shaped stars.

I would like to see what is in print on front. Looks more tribute to 970 ag tractor for blue striping on fender. Spirits have red & white stripes.

Off topic. What is that PVC pipe like thing hooked onto the tent rope to left of tractor?  The purpose?  A shock? or maybe just a weight?  Don't get what that is for, or if keeps things down better in winds??  Interesting pto on the front of that. That be reduced to 540 speed then?

Yes it is 540 rpm as many of older farm tractors

That is a weight on the rope! The tractor is not a real "Spirit", just his rendition of it! First time I have seen him drive it!

Yeah, he knows the difference but I did not. Have talked with him a quite a bit. Has a huge Case/Ingersol collection. Showed a fraction of it at this show.
