Why does this look so familiar to me??? I know I saw this not long ago! Not hard to miss with the electrical box dash. I wonder if it comes with a 200 amp main breaker? :D

Were these open tractors. or was there a hood originally?

I also got a kick out of the dash!

Hoods where actually an option, I don't know when hoods started being put onto every tractor; I will say very late 50's. And many of the ones that did have hoods, had them taken off and never put back on.

The first time I looked at it I thought it was the magneto, but I noticed it was an alternator when I went back and looked at it closer. I did not know it was GM though.

That tractor is a 1950 according to the SN. I'm not even sure they offered a hood as an option in that year. I think they started in the early 50's but not that early. I've never seen one with those front wheel yokes that had a hood. That's just when they were getting out of the chain steering. Someone should grab that one as it's a good starting point for a restore.

The post has been deleted but chris is right, it is a Wisconsin. In 1950, they offered two different Wisconsin engines and one briggs so either way there was a good chance that the engine was original or at least correct for that year.
