I'm not interested in this, just thought that it is odd enough to post.
Bungartz Volkswagen Powered Tractor with 40 HP VW Motor - $4000 (N Franklin CT)
This tractor utilizes a 40 HP VW industrial motor and a belt-driven hydraulic pump for the 2-point rear hitch. It features a multi-geared forward and reverse transmission and a PTO that has 2 speeds forward and 1 speed reverse. There is also a lever for locking the rear end for traction. While it's a small-looking tractor, it is heavy (about 3000 lbs) and extremely powerful. It will pull large amounts of weight, with it's only downfall being the narrow wheels will dig (shocked everyone at the tractor pull we brought it to).
Included with the tractor is an original Bungartz (from what we've been told) adjustable cultivator, 2 one-row plows and a disc harrow. There is also a set of dented orchard fender skirts. I also have a bunch of Bungartz and VW Industrial paperwork that goes with it. There are original front and rear Bungartz lights, along with a trailer plug. There is a VDO oil temp gauge and a new Bosch ignition switch.
It does run and drive. I have worked on creating an exhaust system, which has some slight flaws, but functions and allows the foot rest to be installed. The ignition switch tends to not put power to the coil when in start mode, so there is a jumper wire for that. The hydraulic pump has stopped pumping for some reason, but when it did work the control valve for the hitch did leak. A spare pump is included. The front tires are replacements, and the rear tires are German, which I believe are original. It is a 6 volt positive ground system.
The hood has a "crease" on one side, and there is some cracking to the filler that was applied to the dash (yes it is unstable on a hilly terrain...). There is some repainting to the factory blue. The gas tank was repainted red, with the new paint wrinkling and peeling off. The steering wheel is severely cracked but the structure is all there. The "horn button" is just a rubber body plug.
