  • Another Moto-Tug -Not a Ford-Ferguson
  • Yesterday I was in mid-Michigan to look at an early 9N and the seller had an old mill converted to a museum of collectables. Outside in back was this Moto-Tug he said was a MOPAR unit. I only had one photo left on my camera and this is it but the dash was an all wood panel. I have no idea if that was original or if someone fabbed it in. Need to research more info on this...

    MOPAR(?) MOTO-TUG:

  • The hood and firewall that shows looks like a Clark. During the 40's and 50's they had Chrysler 6 cylinder industrial engines. I also guess it was modified for a parade float puller.

  • Seen one like you described at the boneyard years ago. It had a flathead continental engine.

  • Interesting!

    It looks like it was built to pull a parade float.

    It's too elaborate for a "working" tug.

  • Yeah, what I thought too -way too broad for easy maneuverability. It may have been one of those baggage train pullers...
