Photo Case SO Orchard /Grove 1947 – Full Restoration

This tractor resides in Ontario, Canada.

This text is on the plaque that is displayed with the tractor:

1947 CASE SO
Original Owner: ORTON STRICKER 1947
Second Owner: STEPHEN KOKOTKA 1956

Bear Lake, Michigan

Purchased From: JOHN LINGG - Colorado, 2O1O

Why did I sell the fenders? The restoration is the answer.
Also, my Case SO (Dad’s tractor) is a 1952 and did not have fenders when my Dad bought it used in 1958. Fenders are from my Dad’s first Case SO. Don found out about the fenders from a thread on SmokStak, so, Harry, you are part of it.
P.S. The dents you see are original dents that Don let remain, maybe I was the cause of 1 or 2.

LOL, I have been to Bear Lake more than a few times! Used to date a girl whose mom lived up there.

Nice restoration. Those are hard to find fenders and my dad passed on a great many SO and DO Case tractors because there was nothing with them for bodywork.
