That's how I would have to have one, even if it is not original.

Weren't the Anzani those primitive Indians in the American Southwest? I would think any of their machines would be very rare!

Thanks for posting. It's great to see vintage iron from across the sea.

Can't wait to see a side view showing the wire wheels. That's nice!

Very nice. From walker to rider.
Does it use the same implements?

That looks very interesting! But what I'm trying to figure out is what that front axle is off of. It doesn't look like it's narrowed, but if it is whoever did it did an awesome job.

The front wheels and axle and brakes were of a 1938 Ford Model C car as fitted by previous owner

When Rolloman takes it out this year for the season I will get more photos and post them

Thanks for your comments

Hi nato 77 yes the axle was cut down and a great job was done this tractor was made during the war and was converted for a local man in the village to tow a trailer around his market garden I heard about it many years ago and was friendly with the man who did the conversion but only recently got to buy the same machine from the mans brother .

It was very well done with no skimping on the metal but the owner must have been very short in height and i am very tall so modifications had to be done I am very pleased with the way it is turning out and it will be the only one with ford axle to exist I will be posting some pictures of my other machines also thanks to the fife plooman for his updates on this subject
