Hi Guys,

 

I'm interested in learning more about the Gibson model E series tractors. Is there any info or literature out there?

 

When were they manufactured? Any production numbers?

 

Thanks, Rob

I was hoping someone else would reply to this. I am by no means an expert. My dad has collected five gibsons so far ( a model A, D, Super D, Super D2, and an E). He has collected a few manuals but none for the E. From what I understand, they were manufactured between the mid forties to the mid 50's. The early E's were lever steer, the later ones were standard steering wheel steering. They built several versions of the E. The plain E was a trycicle type front end. The EW was the same as the E except for an extra wide rear. The model EF was a wide front, and the model EWF was a wide front and wide rear.

I'd appreciate it! Rob

Just curious if you've had a chance to look for the serial number on your Dad's E? (The Wisconsin engine serial # would be super helpful as well.) 

 

A pet project of mine is a registry I've created; in which I've consolidated the different registry's I've found and added the tractors I've noticed in effort of trying to figure out serial number breaks, when Gibson made changes to the E, etc. While there are alot of gaps yet that can only be filled as more tractors are added, it's really interesting to me to see how the data is trending.

 

Thanks! Rob

unfortunately this tractor was cobbled up before restoration. A crude bracket was welded on the frame right over the serial number, so the serial number is lost to time. Sorry I can not help you with your quest. If you want info on any other models, we have an A, D, super D, and super D2 as well.

I do appreciate you looking anyway! I'm tr asking Super D's and Super D2's as well. If it's not a huge inconvenience, I'd love to know what those serial numbers are as well.
