It looks like there are a couple of pictures of the same tractor on the Speedex Tractor Imformation web site. They are in the tractor pictures section under the 1631 pictures. Also there is a picture of a 1631 that looks similar to MiCarls.

Man, that rig is Noisy at least!  Brand new and sounds clunky!  Except for rarity of the model, don't think was all that cool of a rig, rather have more modern tires and V-twin on mine.  This is one of the best chassis sizes that they had tho, even with that antique drive line, heh!  I would like to have the one with hydro motor in place where trans is on most of these. 1692? or 1892?, something similar.

That Speedex Diesel Steel Wheel has to be the only "factory new" tractor left in existence. Considering how many Speedex branded tractors were built over time it is a very rare find indeed even more so as it was a special build forgotten warehoused prototype -  diesel, steel wheels, t92 trans, rounded fenders, one of the first hydraulic 3pt lift and in pristine condition. Truly incredible find and holds a special place in all brands of tractor history. Sure doesn't get much better than that!
