Thats funny! I was just looking at this on ebay right before i switched here. Interesting but not for me. I am sure the flat head maybe worth something.

This tractor is awesome. I have 3 other Home Built tractors in my collection and they are all unique and different. It if wasn't so far away I would be more interested in it.

Popular Mechanics and Popular Science in the 30s, 40s, 50s, and 60s were loaded with articles on building machines from junk cars. An old Model A, shortened, with an extra trany, tire chains and a big counter weight was called "a doodle bug". There are still a bunch of them in my area. Most were used to plow snow or pull a plow and harrows. Horse drawn implements were cheap and plentiful. They were rigged to work on the doodle bugs. Everything was low budget. I've seen atleast 4 on CL in the last year. I posted, on GTT, 2 that were built from old Crosleys. Good Luck, Rick
