Attached are photos of a mid 50's Strunk Chipmunk amusement park tractor I just finished building. I've also include photos of what I started with and I only other Strunk amusement park tractor I've ever seen or heard of. I had to make the fenders and rear cover, running boards, seat ring and amusement bumpers. I do have other Chipmunks so I had something to look at. I thought that someone added the hood trim but I did see another one that had the exact same trim. That's the original color I don't have any history on Strunks used in parks. It's a lot smaller that other amusement park tractor.

I've attached a pictures of a few more amusement park tractors in my collection. I've been doing research on these little tractors for quite awhile now but info is very scarce as they were mainly used in the mid 50's to late 60's. Kiddieland near Chicago ran their tractors into the late 90's with many guards added for safety. If anyone has any info on amusement park tractors I would enjoy talking with you.
