This 1937/1938 Minneapolis Moline UDXL replica is approximately half scale to the original Minneapolis Moline UDXL. It was shop built for the last 13 years. Has a 4 cylinder Ford valve in head tractor engine and runs on LP gas. It has an automatic transmission that makes it fun and easy to drive. Custom made rims all the way around and tires are 8 ply; front ones have 80% tread left. The size is 20x10x10. Rear tires are brand new and have tractor lug with the size 31x15.5x15. Also has fully working tail lights, head lights, and four way blinkers. The cab is newly upholstered. Runs and drives great. This tractor is ready for tractor shows or even a museum piece. This tractor can be used to pull a lot of weight. This is definitely an eye catching piece. Don't miss out on this one of a kind, Minneapolis Moline UDXL replica. Also available is a matching color 16ft tilt back trailer with ramps. It has electric brakes and a 2in ball. Trailer would be available for additional cost.

If he put that much time in it he could at least call it by what it is.  A UDLX, not a UDXL.  I will give him it's kinda neat, but it don't look too much like a UDLX.  Sure ain't museum quality in my book.

It appears to be an Air Plane Tug, with a cab and yellow paint.

Might not be so bad if it actually looked like it's namesake.

Yeah, this MM guy says he's way off on the Looks department. I was reading and expecting some nice tin work or such, but NADA! There aren't any FLAT panels on a real UDLX!   There is a collector out there that has made many small scale MM machines that look really like what they are to be, thought might have been same fella. Nope, no way!
