Thanks for the nice pics. Looks like a good show.

In the first pic , there's a yellow/orange JD, is that original color? I'm not a JD guy, just curious .

I think the owner was working more towards a custom piece of fire fighting apparatus!

We have been here since coming in!

From what I have read, it is thought this was painted yellow for some state highway department or some other "special" origination from the factory.

Looks like a great show to go to, thanks for posting the pics! There are quite a few early garden tractors there.

Yes, my favorites are 1960 and older, but that's just me.

I see "Chuck's" PK's there, including the one with Concrete "tires", ha!  Supposed to be lots of PKer's there.  Some went to Mission Manufacturing for a tour of place, holder's of the rights and sell parts for them.  I see too many of those tiny little "Wanna' be" tractors anymore. They are always cute, but only reason they are still alive is they were Junk when new and thrown aside soon in the barn, resting for decades till dragged out again.  (The Dark Side)

Thanks for the pics!

 

Do you have any pics of the "mini Ford 8N" partially seen in pic #2 ?

I'm sorry I don't Bruce. It was a vertical engine rider with the Ford conversion hood grill assembly. The cool part was the fabricated "Dearborn" bushhog and about 4 other 3 pt. attachments.

That's the problem with buying the kit to build a mini 8N - the hood is too small for a garden tractor size rig and it needs to be put on a lawn tractor. 

Thanx for the pics!!!!

 I think most of us are using machines that could fit your comment. Everyone of these "cute want-to-be" tractors had their place in the day and most have some historical meaning to them, as they were for-runners of some other tractor.

 

 

Thanks for the pics!

The fellow told me it was built on a Kubota  mower chassis.  The dash, floorboards and the seat were all from a (real) 8N!

He did have 4 or 5 little "attachments"  that fit on his electric 3 point lift, but I thought they were not quite big enough to look proportional to the tractor.
