I found my Speedex on Craigslist.  It was the first Speedex I had ever seen and it was love at first sight.  After a short road trip, it was mine.  Hubby and I had great plans for him to restore it.  That plan ended when he had a terrible fall from a ladder, surgery, and rehabilitation without limitations now.   A friend restored it for me.

 

I found the plow on eBay.  This project was 100% funded by my selling on eBay.  :)  The more parts needed the more I needed to sell.   "ritamiller" on eBay.

 

I think this is 1974 S24, but since this is the only Speedex I have ever seen, I may be wrong.  The last 2 photos are what "My Man" looked like the day he came home with us.

"My Man" runs good too.  LOL  Hubby learned that you should save half your gas to get back home. It's a gas guzzler.

 

Hubby fell off his ladder and had a left massive/complete rotator cup tear (shoulder) and then surgery.  He was 7 months out from  surgery, when working on his MF7, and fell off the 5 gallon bucket he was sitting on and tore his right rotator cup.  Unbelievable!

 

He's finishing up his MF7.  Amazing what you can do without shoulders.

 

Our next project is a replica 8N and a hay wagon.  He does all the work and I list on eBay to pay for his hobby.  I sell some amazing Corvette Fordite items.    "ritamiller" on eBay also.

 

He is going to post his Farmall pulling tractor.
