Trying to find dads 560

After spending most of my day today attempting to read this ENTIRE site, I feel I need to post my story and there might be a chance someone can help me. My dad farmed until 95' or 96' in Leland, IL. He had some older... but reliable iron. The two tractors that I remember the best were the (2) 560 diesels. They both were wide front, quick hitch tractors. They were his go to tractors for everything. This is where my story really starts. We moved off the farm when I was young, but even in the city I could not get the farming blood out of my system. Started working for a cattle farmer at the end of high school, which lead to when I turned 20 and moved back out within a couple of towns of Leland, I found myself farming for a local grain farmer as I just could not get it out of my system. My dad came out a few times to ride the banker seat with me and you could see the gleam in his eye as it was not out of his system either. Dad has since fully retired and now lives just up the road from me and my family. As my dad gets older I try to find as many things that I can to do with him as you get older you start to see things in a different light. So about the tractors. I have been searching for a few years in Indiana (as I thought they went there) to find 'his' old tractors. Problem, my dad is a stubborn old farmer and I have to keep my prying and questioning about his old iron short and quick so he does not figure out what I am doing. He would be so quick to shut down my investigation telling me, 'I don't want that old junk back.' But you all know as well as I do that if I could pull in the drive with one of his old tractors for a restoration project... well... we would see a different side. So this year at the fair as we are walking threw all the old tractors, I find out from him that the 560's went to Vandalia, IL. I was way off! This has sparked the fire something fierce to find one of these tractors. I found a fitting tractor there, but I just don't know how to tell if it was his or not. I have the last 3 digits of a 4 digit serial, but the first one not visible. I had my mom do some investigation to see if she could locate the serial numbers from his records, but she had no luck. So, do any of you know how to go about finding a tractor in the reverse direction? Not to mention one that was sold on a sale 20 years ago? Any help would be great as I am just trying to do a turn of 360 on a 560! Phil
