I have a Brownie Jr tractor made in Peoria ILL. Serial #146. Need info as to age, value etc. need set of front tires. Any info appreciated.

Paint is good and engine is running.

Hey gene. Let me know if you want to sale your tractor. I might take it off your hands. Thanks, Chris

Welcome Jeff!  We exhibitted beside one another at the Riverbend show a couple years back, and I got a kick out of your little machines and Struck's.  One of these days when I know I'm going to be stuck sitting at my sister in law's in Hudsonville, I may have to reach out...I'd love to see your collection! 

 

Since that show, I have added a son, with another boy due this summer.  My interest in the small machines is skyrocketing!  =]

 

Guys, Jeff's work is top-notch....amazing stuff.

That tractor came from the same park as mine, West View Park outside Pittsburgh. The Bantams had a spring loaded front bumper. Thanks

Man, I would love to have one like in the very first picture that is red and has the single seat.  I think it would be awsome for the grandkids to drive around out in the yard. :rocker2:

Chris their actually pedal tractors I converted into pull tractors. In the 50's there was a company that used Hiller Yard Hands and the Pony tractors to pull up to 10 smaller tractors that the kids would ride on. It was called a tractor train. Very little info on this company. I've never been able to find out what the actual pull behind tractors were or looked like other than they were smaller than the pulling tractor. They were also probably converted pedal tractors because in the 50's pedal cars were converted to use on merry go round type rides.

O ok. That's really cool. I've never heard of tractor trains before, bet they were big hits for the kids at the amusement parks. Looks like you did a great job on them
