  • It's a Ford..... contraption
  • If you look up the word "contraption" in the dictionary, this is the picture they have in the margin...

    a machine or device that appears strange or unnecessarily complicated, and often badly made or unsafe.

    Sure would be a conversation piece at a tractor show...

  • I don't know if it could actually perform all around farming (smooth rear wheels) but I would sure like to meet or to have met the person who put that together. Creative imagination, a commodity sorely lacking in too many.

  • More of an add for Shoppes at Kirbyville than an ad for tractor!

  • That is a nifty contraption. That is something that would be fun to resurrect.
    They used a pony motor that looks like it could be Ford with a spin on oil filter.
    They also used some tractor parts.
    They did a lot of work on it and hand fabricating.

  • The engine is a Ford Industrial Power Unit.134 cid with the original Cartridge type oil filter. FWIW. SoS.

  • JD pedestal steering gear. F20 planetary 3rd member? Very cool. I like the suspension on the tricycle front end..

    Paint it red green and gray. Use it for parades.
