Can you get more pictures of different views of it. I'm not a PK expert but that doesn't look like an Economy to me at all. It looks like it has a cast rock shaft on the rear end for the 3 pt..

Yeah, get a few more pics if you can.  It doesn't scream Economy to me either.

I am not sure what it is, but I can say it is not anything made by economy. If you are able to get more pictures somebody could probably ID it.

Yes, with a long link from the middle of the tractor to the front axle..

Need to know a little more first. The pics will help nail down brand and worth.
Also, does it run, any known or unknown problems, etc?

Without a little more to go on, and not knowing issues, ou almost have to go with what you can recover in a worst case scenario.
If the tires are good and the rims, you might get 20 for them, the rest maybe 30-50-70 in scrap and/or scavenged parts.

I looked through some of my stuff here and found that this tractor closely resembles a Waterloo Bronco.  That said, there are still some differences that you can pick out such as the front axle assembly.  The Bronco was made between 1948 and 1950 and had a two cylinder Wisconsin.  You mention that this tractor has a Wisconsin but didn't say how many cylinders.  I assume one?  The Bronco also came with 24" rear wheels where these appear to be 16".  Now we all know how folks tend to keep their tractors in original condition so it's not at all possible that this tractor was never altered at some point...

That's the first I have heard of the Waterloo Bronco and that is one neat looking tractor!

 

The steering wheel on this tractor looks like it is almost straight up and down.

 

That tractor might be right in your neighborhood,Jeff.

Well, maybe.  Never thought about it.  If it's close enough, I would gladly go take a few more pictures if the timing is right.  Don't worry, I'm not in the position to buy anything right now.  I need that tractor like I need another hole in my head.  I'm trying to get rid of stuff at the moment.  PM me with location (if you want to reveal it) and perhaps I can go take some pics and get a feel for what it is.
