A buddy gave me a call,he was in the middle of moving and didn't have room for a few things. He needed to thin out a little. He said " I have a tractor and some parts,if you don't want them they are going to scrap". So i ran over and picked up a Commando 6 that is re powered,runs and drives nice but looks rough and a B80 in parts.The Commando has been under a tarp for a few years and he said he started it about once a year and it always started right up. It started right up for me at home and i took it for a test spin. I'm thinking snow plow tractor with the 6-12 mud and snow rear tires with two link chains that it has on it or...i has a set or 8.50 Firestone AG's that would look better on it but i would have to use another tractor to plow with because the Firestone's most likely wouldn't bite in snow....i like fun decisions...it makes real life go away for a minute...lol

You have the best looking WH grill with that one. They make great plowing tractors. Good Luck, Rick

Neat looking tractor. I'd leave the 6-12's & chains on and give it a try. May need some weights back there, but it may surprise you.

Rick my favorite grill is the one before this style. The 65-67 grill has one more slot and a narrower blank out plate across the top. My favorite model would have to be any of the 66-67 long frame / long hood models with the "one more slot grill". I do like the 68-69 style grill that the Commando has too though.

I'm biased. My first GT was my 68 Raider 9. She is out of commission right now but we have done alot together over the last 33 years. Good Luck. Rick
