A friend sent me photos of a GT taken at D Bar ranch near Durango, CO. I see parts of a Planet Jr. Anyone recognize the gas tank?

 

*I believe that the back end of the tractor is early 60s Wheel Horse.

Wheel Horse. Looks like someone extended the frame.

Thanks for sharing the photos. Very interesting tractor. My "homemade tractor" (which is just a collection of iron, so far) has Planet Jr. parts too.

Toro.  That also screams Planet Junior.

Looks like an old-school puller, to me.  Chain drive and all.   :firejumper:
