Cuero FFA and Southwest FFA of San Antonio are among the 12 finalists of the 2013 Delo Tractor Restoration Competition according to a Sept. 17 Chevron press release.

The event will bring the nation’s top teen tractor restoration specialists to Louisville, Ky. -- during the 86th National FFA Convention -- to compete for the national title.

The 2013 entries have been narrowed down to 12 finalists -- with eight of these from Texas -- who will present their projects to a panel of five seasoned tractor restoration experts. Each project will be graded on the restoration process, safety precautions, results, documentation, and their oral presentation.

The grand champion will be awarded $10,000, the reserve champion receives $5,000, and third place takes home $3,000.

Cuero FFA’s entry is a 1968 Case 1030 Comfort King.

Southwest FFA of San Antonio’s entry is a 1953 Allis Chalmers G.

“Every year we are inspired by the accomplishments of our participants,” said Jeff Snyder, industrial brand specialist, Chevron Products Co. “What they have done goes well beyond simply fixing a tractor. Through patience, tenacity, determination, and teamwork, they have restored a piece of history, created lifelong memories, and learned skills they can use throughout their life. The Delo Tractor Restoration Competition is something Chevron is proud to support.”

Since 1995 the Delo Tractor Restoration Competition has rewarded the determination, mechanical skills, and business savvy of high school-aged tractor restoration experts from around the country.

All entrants to the Delo Tractor Restoration Competition are required to submit a workbook detailing the entire tractor restoration process, from mechanical overhauls of the engine and transmission and auxiliary and ancillary systems to the external appearance of the tractors.
