Current and Projected Expenses for Farmall H Restoration Project. Note that I never got around to updating this with the final expenses, but at least it should give you an idea.  Keep in mind that these prices reflect the 1997-1998 timeframe. Prices have gone up some, but so has parts availability. A lot of things I had to get from the salvage yard are available in reproduction now!
