1953 Minneapolis Moline UBU Industrial. I am told the factory did not have record of building this . and it was likely a UBU and a UTI combined. The man that had the 450 acre farm auction recalled it being as this as long as he had it and he was in his 80's. It was a bidding war between me and the scrap man and I won. It appeared to be frozen as the crank hit the plow frame, it had frozen steering and the shifter shifted nothing when moved around. Now it rolls, stops, steers, turns over, shifts and should run when I get a few minutes to rewire the coil. It gets a lot of looks in the driveway from passers by. My favorite part is the 10,000 pound front axle with 10 x 20 truck tires on MM cast centers. Cant decide if it would look cool repainted or if its better as is. Looks like something from Jeepers Creepers or Maximum Overdrive.
