My favorite tractor that I don't have. The WD45 was a terror in field demos in it's day. Put the competition on it's heels.
I have no tag line

Well here she is! Me and my grandpa are going to start restoring the body the 2nd week of July. All we will have to do is sand and paint, she is in great shape! I must say I am very glad I went with the WD45, I have had a lot of AC enthusiast's compliment how great these tractors are. I have drove it a few times and runs great! I already picked up a snow blade for 90 bucks! Thanks for your guys help. Can I ask again, now what? I know nothing about these old tractors, are there any books or manuals I should look for? Any important things to know about them??? Thanks!

aj,
I looked at the picture and it looks to be a straight solid tractor. If your grandpa has a body shop I am sure it will turn out great. Things to look for:
Good strong snap action in the hand clutch,
pesky oil leaks for almost any orifice
Jumping out of gear, typically third
any engine smoke, 
Lots of books out there. Try to get a service manual, usually better than the IT manuals.
Have fun and be carefull! 
We need some more pictures when you get it out.
Regards,
 Chris

I have had good success looking for AC manuals at:
http://grandpas-tractor-site.s3.amazonaws.com/manuals/ac

many manuals are available for purchase on ebay.

Neglect the IT manuals. They are very thin compared to official factory shop manuals. They believe you know machinery fundamentals, e.g. have worked on tractors for half a century.

Congratulations, now read first then drive lol. Maintenance is what determines whether or not they're still here or if they were scrapped years ago. And whether they'll still be around in another 50 years or not. Check the brakes, too - and as much as I like to complain about what until recently considered an idiotic brake design (thanks for the education, Don(MO)!), when they used to be worked regularly the brakes were being relined every 3-4 years so the pins never had much chance to seize up like they do (or seem to) today.
Have fun!

Yes, a very nice looking farm fresh tractor!

Gerald, that link, doesn't work for me.
