Well here are a few picture of the tractor in my profile picture.

 

I can't take credit for the build as I did not build it.  I gentlemen in MN built this tractor.  I bought it from him at the Orange Spectacular in Hutchinson, MN in 2014. 

 

I 1st seen this tractor in Hutchinson the year before just weeks after getting my 1st Allis Chalmers tractor.  I went to the show looking for parts and implements for the tractor (712S).  seen this tractor and took tons of pictures and decided then I wanted to make on like this.  Well with limited space to rebuild, the chance came to me to buy the tractor I wanted to build so I bought it.

 

It is a 700 series with a variable speed, the motor is  out of a Thermoking truck refrigerator and was a brand new crate diesel.  the tractor has maybe 5 or 10 hours of run time.  I really don't know a lot about it since I didn't build it but it looks cool and is a riot to drive so it was well worth what I paid for it.

 

Enjoy and I post more pictures later

I'm guessing that it might have begun life as a Simplicity 3300 series. The hood is definitely a pre 1976 Simplicity. Variable would be pre 1974.

It is pretty. I suppose the rock shaft is long gone.

What a great picture you just posted :thumbs:    Was your tractor built for pulling or just to look like one ?

I think the guy pulled it a few times, but it all stock but the motor.  (I believe)  I am going to pull it this summer a time or two.  I have never pulled before and have always wanted to.  I just don't want to break it.
