Curious if anyone is familiar with Eshelman? I don't remember Eshelman ever being discussed on this forum is why I ask.
From what I've read, Eshelman was based out of Baltimore, MD and manufactured walk behind garden tractor, then riding tractors, micro cars of various sizes, then full size cars and other stuff. They must have had their own foundry as every piece seems to be casted. From what I've read, Chester Eshelman was very unique, interesting guy.
I did some horse-trading with a good friend and ended up going home with this pair of Eshelman's; a 1954 tractor and 1956 Child's "sports car" which is powered by a 2.5hp Briggs 6B engine.
Really unique little machines that I'm excited to learn more about!
