If you have a homemade tractor please posts photos. I love the Yankee engineering and old parts that went into building these tractors. They are a real homage to the shade tree mechanics of the 1950-1960's. I have never understood why these tractors don't get more attention from collectors.

Don't know a thing about this one.  Bought it just like you see it.  

I figure its homemade because it has hydraulic brakes.  Someone did a fabulous job to say the least. 

Built very heavy,  even the sheetmetal is not sheetmetal,  its much thicker.

I have been thinking about getting old car parts and farm tractor parts and trying to build a homemade tractor. Someday maybe I'll get around to it but too many projects now lol

Ray you can't enter your tractor. A home made tractor is suppose to look home made and yours doesn't. Sorry!  :smilewink:
