Saw this little tractor and not sure what it is do you know? A guy on another site is trying to figure it out.

Posted Image I just picked up this from a scraper friend and would like some help to identify what make it is. What I know is it has a crosley 4cylinder with a 3speed trans that looks factory installed not cobbled in. 6Volt positive ground with a channel frame. I have searched and the only one that looks sort of like it is a Jacques. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks Dave J.

And here is a thread started by Lauber1 that has a good picture in it.

There are references online to the tractors being made by an unnamed tractor company in TX.

The B&W pic above was titled 1952.

The tractor is not mine. Just found it on antiquetractor.com and was curious myself.

That is an interesting little tractor. The Crosley engine was a very smooth running little guy and purred like a kitten.
It was the engine of choice at one time in 3/4 midget racing, rivaled only by the Ford V8 60 and model A engine with various after market overhead valve conversions .Crosleys are hard to find (cars, trucks or tractors), because the engines were robbed to adapt to so many other applications. I saw a stretched Cadet with the crosley engine in it at a tractor show some time back and it was a sweet conversion.
