this tractor was on display for many years in a gift shop in Pigeon Forge,tenn. it was considered a center piece in the shop. as a matter of fact this is part of Pigeon Forge history.  I remember seeing this in the 70s when visiting... then around 83 the gift shop owner died and then the tractor  was sold to a funeral director in London ,ky  where it stayed for years untill I came across it on craigslist.  and I brought it back to Tenn.   unfourtunally  someone just had to screw it up by painting it with a brush or spray cans..

on the frame is stamped  12-5-45  and t 8 E-1  and  WG  the engine is stamped  B and below that is a S

is it a Deutz ? no info plate no model #..  I may take offers instead of restoring it.

this tractor is only 5ft 4 inches long   enloy the pics and I hope to get feedback

Welcome to the forum


That's the 3rd or 4th time that little tractor has been posted here in the last year or so, not sure if we ever determined the maker of it.


Cool little tractor.

Even cooler, you know some of the history of it.
