New A Owner

Postby jbevard » Sun Apr 21, 2019 7:33 am

We just had or first tractor delivered last week and it is a 1947 Farmall A that was a barn find. We don't know anything about its previous life beside being told it had been sitting in a barn for 6-7 years before being pulled out and sold. Looks like it was pretty well cared for before being parked.

I would love to hear any tips or tricks for first time owners. I look forward to continuing to browse here and learn as well.

Good, honest looking A. What's the serial number? Curious how far it is from the end, because I'm kind of a nerd about such things!

Serial number on the tag is FAA184691. Is there a way to learn anything more off it besides year?

Since it is before number 200001, it was built at Tractor Works in Chicago. Anything after 200001 was built at Louisville.
