This would be an easy tractor to restore. Also it has a small antifreese leak on the motor. I have the owners manual too. Is $500 dollars too much to ask for this tractor??

  • I purchased a Case VAO (?)this past Saturday at an auction. My dad had a VAC when I was a younger and I have wanted to get one to restore. The tractor is missing the plate on the dash, so at this point I have been unable to find a SN and other than the fact that they said it was a VAO, I am not really sure of that (it is very similar to a VAC). It seems to have lower profile tires than I remember and a wide front end (might be after market equipment). Any ideas where else I might find a SN on this tractor?

There was a hydraulic lift on it from the dealer but he had a much stronger one built at a local machine shop. The shields were removed when the orchard trees became less bushy. I m needing a left branch shield and I'm hoping to find one so I get it finished by August so we can use it for pictures for his 60th Wedding Anniversary.
