This is the story behind our club's agricultural museum having another of our late club member's tractors in its possession. This tractor belonged to long time club member, Ray Powell. Ray had been working for several years on doing a complete restoration on this particular tractor and had finally gotten the engine completely gone over and was starting to get ready to work on the body when, sadly he passed away. The rest of this story, as written by Ray's widow, Judy is posted below. Mechanically, she does purr like a kitten. I know that for a fact, as I drove it from Ray's shop to our museum building with just one little mishap along the way, that being the right rear wheel falling off the tractor about half way down Ray's driveway. That will get one's attention but no damage was done and an hour later the tractor was safely in the museum building. Enjoy the story, enjoy the pictures and come out to the museum when you can to see the tractor as she presently is, "in her work clothes".
