My friend & I went halvsies on a '52 VAI. Watch the road gear, it's dangerous to go that fast with worn front end parts... I have a Parts catalog that's quite handy with it's exploded views. If you need to see a section, let me know, I'd send the whole thing, but it's 120+ pages. Happy tractoring - Alan

A lot of mechanical parts are the same on all versions of VA series Case. If you need a grille that has not been flattened - well, I wish you luck.

Agreed on the tin. We were given a "Free" hood & grill over the phone one day. Guy kinda ran a junkyard of sorts. Just stop by & get it... grill was "ok" is but the hood would've been perfect if some yokel didn't use it as a creeper when he stopped by to get his stuff before we did. He kicked the nose off so he could bend it flat. My only hope was he found the prop rod uncomfortable.

kwy427, this months issue of Antique Power (july/aug) has an artical on the development of the Case VAC. Might be of some interest.

It's called "Burgh Implement" website:Burgh Implement
Map: Google Maps (you can zoom into street level & look at the front of the property... talk about an attention getter)

Hope that helps... It doesn't look like he has much for the VA series tho
