Merlin the 1949 Farmall Cub

Postby Hengy » Thu Feb 24, 2011 11:00 pm

Here is the lonely cub that found the City Boy...

As he was found in the for-sale ad:

After a DOUBLE PUMP rejuvination at Cubfest in 2007: (lots and LOTS of work done at Cubfest!)

Here he is after repainting and new decals!

And the family gathered around the tractor in 2009 for our Family Christmas Picture!


This tractor was truly a FORUM is because of this forum that he is running as he is today...

Pride and joy!

Great Christmas photo.
A select few on here do go out of their way to help new cub owners, and you are one of them Mike!
