Well, after only waiting for little over a year, I finally got the old girl home.  With a little tinkering...i.e. working on the mag, and replacing the carb with one I had redone already, she fired right up after sitting for about 5 years under a tarp outside.  Had to get new rear tires (still waiting for one to come in).  The front tires are solid rubber.  The word 'Page" in cast into the front spindles and the rear axle hubs.  Sorry no pics of these...only found them after getting her in the shop.   Here are a few pics of her on the trailer....boy what a happy day.  If anyone has any clue to an approximate year, that would be greatly appreciated.  I have heard you can date something by using the numbers on the Wisconsin engine, but not sure where to find that info.  Enjoy and I hope to have more pics up either during mild restoration or shortly there after.DSCF4228.JPG DSCF4225.JPG DSCF4227.JPG DSCF4230.JPG DSCF4235.JPG DSCF4229.JPG

Wouldn't you think after an era that produced the Cord automobile, the Chrysler Airflow, and the beautiful 1941 Lincoln, that they could put a decent hood on a tractor?

January 1958

How could you tell?  

tractor no. is 5816241  15RG   W1S.  Wisc. engine is model AENL serial # 2869646.  

 

I was hoping late 1940's myself, but honestly had no idea.  Only Pages I have seen were either the rear engine ones, or if they had the engine in front, they had a hood of some sort.

 

The fenders seem to be original, but the hand crank rear lift does not.

 

Also picked up a Red-E walk behind that still has the original wheel weights still on.....sorry no pics of that just yet.

Wisconsin engine website has a serial number lookup that will date the motor.

It has the Page tag on the side of it. Not saying it couldn't have been switched over but that's usually not the case. I've been looking at some of these tractors and it seems the first two digits of the tractor serial number indicate date. In this instance, it fits.

As I typed in the model number, it occurred to me...the first three numbers...581.  meaning 1958, 1st month, January.  

 

My neighbor has a 1949 Economy, which has a similar frame and engine/clutch/transmission set-up, so I was hoping for a little older, but I am not disappointed at all with my purchase.

 

I'll check the Wisc. website and see what it says about the engine year.

Just checked the Wisc Engine website...Manufactured in 1958 in January.  

 

Thanks LilysDad for the link!
