Michael’s grandparents, Otto and Hulda Lamle, bought this tractor at a Watonga farm store in 1956 for $1,670.29. Michael still has the original bill of sale. They farmed one quarter of land until his grandfather retired. Michael’s late uncle, Walter, then purchased it and kept it in the shed for 20 years. In an effort to keep the tractor in the family, Michael purchased it from his aunt, Penny, when the tractor was no longer in running condition. Michael has owned the tractor for three years, and in his spare time he overhauled the engine and restored it to the original condition.
