Just wanted to renew a request for information on 4 wheeled Midland GT's sold by Montgomery Ward (1959).

I know there's a lot of activity in the 2 wheel tractor market and I would appreciate your sharing any 4 wheeled information you may come across during the searches you do.

Thanks, Bill

Bill, is this the one that was basically a two wheel tractor with the steerable riding sulky?

No, it is an actual 4 wheeled GT. I have pictures posted in the Wards Forum

That is a very interesting machine you have there. The chain looks a little dangerous though LOL! Sadly, I don't have any info for you though. Bu I will watch this thread to see if anyone else does.

Thanks, in advance, for anyone's help with information.

caseguy... There is actually a guard that goes over that chain. I just removed it to show the drive mechanisms in the photo. It's made easy to remove, because the sprockets can be switched around, along with moving the drive belt on the engine to a different size pulley. It's all done manually, but gives the 3 speed transaxle a "double" hi-lo range option.
