..... 1937 Shaw Du-All tractor conversion .....

Here's how it looked when I got it.
The tractor was not useable because you couldn't sit on it and operate the controls.

Here's how it looks now after redesigning and rebuilding the tractor.

Very nice Ray! (Edited) Had to come back to add more. Grandson case was in my lap, and very hard to type with caps & all with one hand! LOL Much as a like red, those colors are nice & period correct. I don't understand what you didn't like about the original drive belt configuration though! LOL

Ray, I have to say that you did an excellent job. Grey is a tough color to paint with because it acts like grey primer and shows every imperfection. So far I have been looking at the pics and have yet to say anything but "Wow, can that tractor live in my shop" LOL

It certainly was unique.
I don't think I have ever seen another one like it.

Actually .. yes, they are old tractor colors.

Engine is Fordson light gray.
Wheels are Hart Parr green.
Trim colors are Old Caterpillar yellow and black.

Not plowing but I am going to make a "York Rake" that will be used with it ( that's my next project ).
