Looks neat enough to be collectable as a $600 conversation piece.

Well it's red .. but my question is ....... why would you have two seats on a tractor ?  I guess it's me, but it's my tractor and i drive it , if you went a ride get in the trailer that's on the back.

Has some resemblance to the old Farmall F20's era. They only had one seat but if you put a plank across the draw bar 4 more could stand and ride along.

Opinion: Unless there is more leg room on the right side than depicted, it would be damn uncomfortable for the passenger to sit nearly side-saddle for a any length of time, especially on rough terrain.

Virtually a novice on these but, it's the oddest setup seen yet.

Heck of a job if it's homebuilt.

From the looks of it the hood is made of wood and 1/4" weld wire. My guess is a home built Butt buggy for shows also. :D

I remember back in the seventies the big Belarus tractors had a bench seat. I guess they were transportation as well as work machines. Maybe it's Russian made, lol.

Butt buggy here too, and homebuilt.  Not sure why the driver is way off to side? Hope all the brakes and go pedals are over there, or else be hard split to drive, heh!  Hydro would be better too then. See "junk" like this at Portland all the time. many with wide bench seats. Even I have a PK kinda odd with two seats and driver sits on left of tunnel, with both pedals there and the offset PK steering is just in line that way.

I will have to say a butt buggy as well

Looks like it started life as a GT and then customized to the owners preference

Have seen may over the years

I collect old gas, steam and hot air engines too and see many of them at the old engine shows
