Dads Tractor 400 Farmall Time

Dads Tractor 400 Farmall Time
When I was a teen in the 1970's Dad bought a 1956 Farmall 400. We had farmed with a Super H for years. What a change from the disk plow to the bottom plow, My Grandfather liked the 400 so much he bought a used one himself. I plowed with the tractors as a young man because my father wanted me to spend time on the part time farm (Dad had to work at SEARS as a repairman) I couldn't understand his passion for getting on a tractor and running it till dark(no lights to busy to change to 12volt system) until one day I had to know what it was that he saw in tractors! We were sitting on the bushog in the field about dark, You could hear the whipperwill calling its mate and he explained, I come home from a job that you get no satisfaction from and crawl on the 400, It does not ask why I am going toward the woods, when I get to to woods edge and turn around it doesn't ask why I'm going the other way, All I hear is the sound of the engine and that relaxes my mind. I didn't get it until he died in 1993. I sold the 400's and now have 444 and 424 utility but I have a 21 year old Daughter that is a senior PRE MED at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill that get's it she can't wait to mow !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
