At Winnamac IN show there is a chassis for a horse that looks much like any other one. Kinda looks like my charger or about that size, BUT, has foot rests for heel of shoe? and no floor pans. The trans is also just a 3spd, no dual range. Flip up rear fender pan, but little diff lock lever than mine. No tags on it. Guy wants $100 for it. No engine. belt cover is laying with it. Might go look at it again if he has later. I would pay $50 for sure, but might go a little more. What model you think? Seems one tooth off steering gear too and it was loose, but looks like other models. I have an extra of one of those. Tires fair and up, even say Wheelhorse on them! Must be orig on them!

GL, that is a 1967 and earlier Wheel Horse. They were models, 1257,1057, 1056, 1055, and maybe a few I didn't recall. I can't think of the model number rear end they used, but it is the heavy duty one that all the pullers wanted.

Here is a couple pictures of one I was watching on E-bay. I hope this helps.

Yeah, looks about right, the foot rests, tilt part and shifter looks like same metal around it. Rest looks like any horse I guess. Have to think about it.

Alan the Commando 6, 7, and 8 are more like the "B" series short frame tractors. The 10 and 12 hp models I was referring to are the early model "C" series.
