In about September 2004, I was working out of town. I had called my significant other to (check in)see how she was, when she told me about an auction 15 miles from home the next weekend. She knew I was chomping at the bit to find another antique tractor to restore, since I had just put up a new metal building this summer. I told her that there wasn't any antique tractors anound Flagstaff Az. so the ad must have been wrong. Braving the snow (12 inches) the next Saturday, I found a 9 N Ford, 70 Oliver and an old Case threshing machine. There was only 30 or so people there, and things were going way too cheap, but after wandering around looking at things coming up, I spotted an old unstyled b John Deere laying on it's belly, missing the fuel tank and other parts as well. But to my amazement, it had a four didget brass tag. No one was interested in it but a 75 year old man, and myself. I won the bid at 600 and proceeded to get the thing loaded and in the shop. To my amazement the serial # was 1023, the 24th one built, and along with it was a good set of Kay Brunner wheels. I am working on the restoration now, and have a new respect for my woman. It does pay to brave the cold, you just never know what is out there, sometimes right in your back yard.
