This topic again???  How old are you to not know that show??   Anyway, looks alot like a Fordson, but think it was some real off-beat brand really. It was figured out once, but don't recall, slept since then, and someone might have idea. Just think, many of the actors on that show are now dead and gone! Farming and Rural life can Kill ya! Ha!

The show is still on the air locally, 2 episodes every afternoon/early evening. One of my favorites.

Don't know what the tractor is, maybe homemade? If you watch, they use 2 or 3 different tractors throughout the series.

I remember a Fordson, but that photo is of a JD GP that was built before the D,  A and B.

And to add to the "added note" on that link.  The Ford tractor that was built to capitalize on Henry Fords name was so bad that it was what made the Nebraska tractor test's come into being.

It was notorious for flipping over and crushing the operator. That why most of the surviving tractors have no rear fenders as they came done low in back and even had tool boxes built into them which got mashed when the tractor reared up pulling on something hard.

Model D was the first JD 2 cyl model, built 1923 - 1953. Next was GP (General Purpose).

Sre you referring to the Fordson tractor that was built by Henry Ford?  They were noted for flipping backwards.  I am talking about the imposter "ford" tractor.

 

Here's a pic of the one I am talking about.
