Default A lifelong collection Farmall, Case,A.C,MM's

My girlfriend and I just inherited a large quon-set hut filled with a mans life long love of tractors,and engines in general. We never really had the time to explore the Old Iron, vintage tractors, twenty three some parade ready quality. We were amazed at the whole shop you literally could restore anything here. The man loved his work, he was from the old school he had a limited education, being he couldn't read. What he lacked in one area he was strong in another. The library of brouchers, parts catalogs, service manuals, factory decals was amazing. Farmall, f-14, M, F-20,F-30,400D, Super C propane, M propane, three he was restoring Farmall 560, M, Gray F-12. He has a Case VOC all steel wheel tractor my girlfriend said she'd never heard of one. There are two John Deer model A's, A.C. model B fully restored cranked over first turn! The list goes on and on magneto's, attatchments and air cooled motors, hit-n-miss engines and a wily four blade mill, there are military standard pumps and a 1953 Willies, Chicago Pnuematic 12" N-50 belt driven old time compressor fully restored. My girlfriend and I decided to maybe reach out and first try to see what we have then entertain our options maybe even become collector we both are trying and learning all about tractors and engines. The man loved his collection and to not respect it and at least learn what we can, we think it deserves the effort. We do what we can, this is alot of machinery and parts a whole shop. We just wanted to say hello. "It worked when I parked it" Crawlers, Cushman, wisconson, Briggs and stratton,. Who knew? Thanks for your time. we've got pictures if anyone wants to see them.

Do you think the Super C propane tractor is a conversion?
Just never seen one of those.
Thanks,
Candy

You got me on that one, I'm thinking with the tank being made somewhere else it was probably done after, but I'm not an authority so I'll check it, out I've never seen a Minniapolis propane but I have one.
