Cool Barn find

Hay guys, I am looking for a old road grader to fix up and run in the local Parades, right now between my old man and I we have a 1946 2n Ford and a 1940 Deere B but the B does not have a road gear and is not user friendly. I know someone on this page might have seen one of these behind a barn somewhere. Any help would be appreciated

looking for something like this





or this



or this





or better yet



or even this

A guy down the road from me has one. I've lived here for 4 years and have never seen it move, so either it doesn't run or he has no use for it.

I talked to my neighbor, he said it ran when it was parked, but that was 7-8 years ago.

I took one yesterday when I went down there.
He said he was planning on scrapping it this summer since he has no use for it anymore and doesn't think in the condition it's in it would be worth much. So I guess he would take scrap value.

If that one doesnt pan out, I saw another one close to marlette. its on the corner of M53 and M81 at a salvage yard. It has a cab also. Worst case you could look at the pair of them on the same day. They are only about 15 minutes apart.
