This is my Speedex show tractor. Its not quite finnished yet but almost there. It's a 1970 S24 that I picked up with no hood or fenders. It should have a round hood on it but the flat hood was the one I saw on Ebay so I bought it. Now that it is finnished almost I like it better with this hood.

Hi. Welcome to GTT neighbour.
Nice looking tractor you've built there.
Not many Speedex around these parts. In fact, yours is
the only one I've seen. Did you find it here in Ont.?

I want a put a narrow front on mine.

That is a cool narrow front, definitely different.
I had a square hood like that but sold it and kept the round hood as it was more complete.

Thanks for the comments guys. My first Speedex was an S19 as well. Over 20 years ago I went looking for a tractor to pull trailers around our back yard and ended up with an S19 because it was rugged and cheap. In the early 70's there was a dealer that sold Speedex locally and there are a few of theme in the area, but they are relativly scarce. Even so I found all of them, except for the 1632 within an hours drive. For the 1632 I drove 6 hours each way to Ohio to pickup. The ones with the hydraulic 3 point hitch are scarcer.
