1962 Farmall 560

Tractor of the Week


This 560 spent most of it's life in southern Indiana, working on the farm owned by the father of well-known Chicago Radio Broadcaster Max Armstrong. The tractor was sold to a neighbor in the 1980s. The neighbor flipped the tractor over, and then it sat outside for many years. The 560 was returned to Max a few years ago in rough condition. The FFA chapter from the Prairie Central High School in Fairbury, Illinois restored the tractor to pristine condition, and the family heirloom is now Max's pride and joy. "The lessons learned will stay with them all their lives," Max said. "I'm proud to be one of the supporters of the FFA."
