That is NOT a 1946 Economy Tractor! It's NOT even an Economy or Power King tractor and someone needs to tell the seller that.

That is an economy made tractor, it has just been heavily modified. The modifications make it kinda hard to date, so I am going to leave a very general guess and say that it could have been made anytime in the 50s.

The entire driveline in front of the differential, steering wheel, steering brace, and they added the frame blocks for later style attachments.

I beg to differ. When does a Brand name tractor become a non brand name? That engine, hand clutch, and transmission are Not Power King items. It's not even a T-92. I'm sure that the front axle and rear axle and part of the butchered frame may have started as an Power King, but there is not enough of the original to call it a Power King frame. IMHO.

I see why you said that now! I agree, not much of what makes it a PK left now!

It's a cool shifter on it though, almost a work of art.

On a positive note, you have an Economy wanna-be for $400.
