1949 Model M
We purchased the M from Robert Beachel Norcatur, Kansas, in August of 2007. He had obtained the tractor at a farm auction near Phillipsburg, Kansas, a few years prior. He said it was a real basket case and began restoring it as he had time. I overheard him comment that he was selling his tractor collection and the M was for sale. After inspecting the tractor, we agreed to purchase it if he would finish the restoration including paint. When he finished we brought the tractor home.
Robert is a very knowledgeable craftsman and his work shows his skill. He is pictured standing on the trailer after loading the M for the trip home. I believe the tractor to be Expo Ready. We are fortunate to own it.
