Well I think I'll stop now.

Still have more of tractors and over a hundred of the cars at the museum. If anyone is interested.

Batteries went dead in the camera and I missed quite a few.

Nice show.   Thank you for taking the time to share it.

That little red crawler on the trailer is an interesting machine.

That little red crawler on the trailer is an interesting machine.

It was completely homemade. I wish I would have taken a "few detail shots." On the inside of the rear drive wheel, a half of a larger car rim was welded with a band type brake hooked to the turn lever. Pull lever back, applies braking force, machine turns, so simple.

That cutaway Gravely has to be a rare piece indeed!

Talked to the owners daughter/daughter inlaw? Apparently the dad worked at a Gravely dealer and this was a display piece. When the dealership closed, he bought it. Some time later it was sold and dad kept kicking himself. After a few years he was able to get it back. They had every style of Gravely built. I really liked the first generation one wheel power they had.
