It’s not in restored shape. when my great uncles were working on it they had to replace all of the wood, and they decided to stain the wood rather than paint it black. Otherwise, all of the metal parts are original.really when they started work on it, it was not much. It had been sitting in the dirt floor garage for many a year. when they got done with it, they drove it is several area parades, but the last few years it only appeared at the Butterfield Threshing Bee.The motor sits under the seat and really is not much to look at. I’m actually amazed it even runs.It really is an interesting machine, but not very practical. One of the neighbors that has been working on it lately bought it, so I expect to see it around again. Another chunk of family history moves on.
