I picked up this Lambert model 1155 yesterday, and after searching high and low, I cannot find a picture of this exact model. This is the first time I haven't been able to find a pic of a tractor that I've come across. I did find a similar tractor, but the fenders and dash sheet metal are different.

Here's a pic of the same model, but you can see the differences.

The only Lambert tractors that I have ever seen resemble the one you put in this post (#2) in the thread.  It makes me wonder if A: The one you found is a very early model before they switched to the bigger fenders or B: Someone added fenders from a Wheelhorse or some other tractor.  There are more differences than just the fenders so I would lean toward the first option.  It makes me wonder if there is such a thing as an experimental Lambert that made it out in the world somewhere.  Unfortunately, there isn't a lot of info out there on these tractors so I don't know of anyone who can be considered an expert on them.  Then again, I don't get out much.

Lambert has some connection with the Tom Moore Co of Mantua OH that built the Farmette. I'm not sure of all the details.

The differences in my tractor all look to be factory done. There is a filler panel spot welded to the back underside of the hood, but there are holes in the hood and dash where the other style of hood hold downs go. The holes in the hood are covered up by the spot welded filler panel. The shift pattern is still present on the dash tower. The rear fenders have tabs spot welded to them for a third mounting bolt. The tabs look die cut and the the fenders don't look to have been an add on. This tractor has me stumped.

DougT is right about the connection with Farmette.  I think they were coming out with the Lambert or branching off or whatever and this was a very early model.  Probably late 50's more, more likely, very early 60's.  That's just my thoughts and I've been wrong before so nothing to lose!  What you show in your close up pics definitely looks factory.

Here is a pic of a Farm-Ette Buckeye model 70A that was made by the Tom Moore Tractor Co. The Tom Moore Tractor Company became Lambert, then Hunter , according to the owner of this tractor. The dash tower is built like mine.

The serial number on my tractor is 66-7343 and the serial number on the 1155 tractor in my second post is 66-726. It looks like that other tractor was made before mine. Grumpy, you must have a box full of bug lights somewhere. I'll give you more than scrap price for em'.

   MAN OH MAN how do you find these things ??  must never sleep.  That is a neat little tractor, cant say much about the make and model but it is definitely a head turner.  if it has you so vexed you will need to sell it :D as  matter of fact I know a guy rite here in town who has room for it :thumbs: rite here behind the house.  the wife would kill me if I brought another tractor home.

Pete, this tractor sat right next to the highway at a busy intersection for a couple of months. It was only a couple of miles from my house, and I passed it several times thinking it was a Wheel Horse. I noticed the paint on the grill yesterday and decided to stop. Good thing I did, since it was about to get hauled off for scrap.

Here's a pic of a Hunter tractor I just came across. It appears to have the same dash and rear fenders as mine.
