How common is the "C" with the single front wheel? I have the only one I've ever seen.

In the Southeast they were fairly common back in the day. a lot of guys who bought them used changed them over to dual wheel narrow or wide front.

I would think the single wheel is rare as I have not seen one. Our C has been on the farm for over 62 years!

At one time we had 4 of them, 1 was on a single wheel, 2 were narrow dual wheel and one had a wide front under it, but came with the original single wheel that ie came from the factory on.

I have never actually seen a C with single wheel. Rarely ever seen one with wide front end.. Some of my fondest memories were riding the fender while my uncle Bob cultivated corn with the C. He later switched to Ford row crop tractors.
The first real tractor I ran as a teenager was a BF Avery Model A with the single front wheel. And will never forget that long afternoon when the front wheel dropped into a trench while mowing 6 ft weeds. What a chore getting that out off the hole by myself.

All of the "C"s I've ever been acquainted with were wide, until this one.

The C model came from the factory with either a single or dual wheel narrow front. You either saw ones that had a B or CA wide front under them. the CA came with any of the options from the B or C.

You're right, (brain fart) They were "CA"'s. The "C"'s were narrow duals just like our "WD"'s. Until this one.
