I found this little feller in a local scrap yard this morning, it is badged as a Ford but I could find no markings or seriel on it. It looks like it might be mostly there and might make a worthy project for someone before it winds up in the crusher.

Looks home made to me.  The engine is a two cylinder Wisconsin and the hood and gas tank are the factory Wisconsin pieces.  The front axle looks like a Model T Ford and the rear axle looks like a Model A Ford.  The steering wheel and center cap is Ford car or truck, era 1932 -1952.   If it is factory built,  I'd say it must be some kind of airport tow tractor or kiln car puller.  ???

I would really be trying to make that purchase!!!!!!!!!   That thing wreaks of cool! :thumbs:

Would have been on the trailer heading home! What ever it is, it looks to be pretty complete and in good shape. Would make a nice score.

Also, I don't see any brakes.   With the factory Wisconsin gear reduction and clutch unit on the back of the engine it probably doesn't need brakes but.  ???

I can't help but wonder what kind of Dufus would scrap a cool old tractor like that?

His wife probably did when he passed away. Happens all the time.

Went back to take another look at the blue tractor and learned the hard truth that it sold three weeks ago and is waiting to be picked up by its new owner. Oh well, next time.  Thanks for the input all.
