My wife said after two GTs that she didn't want me to collect them.  My newest purchase is not a GT so what can she say.  Really though, she's great but this fills my sheds.  I will even throw in a shot of my Grandpa and his Case VAC.   Reg

That's a good lookin' late model VAC  Reg!  

That'd be somewhere around 1952-1955 and even has the Eagle Hitch.

Very cool. How does she feel about attachments, implements, and neat little pullable items? No end to what you can add to your herd without actually getting more GT's. Just sayin'.....

He owned a shop for over fifty years.  This was a shop tractor.  Oh, and he was a machinest too.  He would have got in rough mechanical and fixed it.  I drove it a couple three times

Also, factory tool box, original crank, and auxiliary foot throttle.  The guy also rigged a nice prop for the clam shell hood.  He bypassed fluid to the three point so this tractor has zero fluid leaks.  He gave me everything including instructions to put the three point back in operation.  Gave me a nice aftermarket service manual and trickle charger. Plus a great price.

Not sure on Grandpa's but after a little research I think mine is actually a VAC-12. Seller says 1951 but I will know tomorrow.
