Hey everybody, I just acquired a wildcat hawkins model 14 tractor the other day, and am hoping to find out some information on it. It is all original and complete except the rear wheels, and I need to find a set of them. And I am also trying to find out what years these were made and about how many were made. Any info will be greatly appreciated. Thanks, chris

Chris, The Wildcats were Made in Lebanon Indiana, the same town as the Bantams by Hawkins Metal Works starting in 1958. There should a fill plug on the left side of the tranny..

 

Good Luck and post some photos of it when you get the chance.

Finally got some pics together of the wildcat. It's not the original color, and I have the carburetor off for cleaning. I think I'm gonna leave it like it is for a while and just enjoy riding it at the shows.

Very solid looking Wildcat! It would be nice to see it back in orange. I never have understood why people love painting other makes in JD colors. That really does look like a very nice machine! :thumbs:
