That is probably an old fordson. I'd say late 20's. Another tractor that is easilly a Fordson's double is an old Wallis model... 10-20? I can't remember the model right off.

That diff reminds me of the Ford model A, so I'm betting Fordson too.

It is a Fordson,and those rear end have worm gear drive.It is early '20's.I had a 1926 that I just sold 3 or 4 years ago.

That one has no steering wheel rim,so that most likely means it was wood,and that also puts it in the very late teens,to the early '20's.
Most had rear fenders from the mid '20's on.

I could go on,but I guess there is no need.:D

This is the other tractor that a lot of people thought was a Fordson. It was actually built by "GM", after they buoght the Samson Tractor Co. They look a simular except for theRad. which is squared of instead of being round.

That thing would be awesome to have. I love the look of it. Especially the rear rims.

That tractor was just on the "Classic Tractor" TV program yesterday! GM lost millions on that venture, actually selling them below cost just to undercut Henry Ford. It didn't work out well! They only built them for like 3 years before getting out of the tractor line.

You know, it might not hurt to stop by the owner's place and inquire about it. Might be yours for not too bad a price. Don't know unless you try and it never hurts to ask.

I sat down one time years ago and figured out the engine size in Dads. It ended up like 400 cu inches or more.

These things were built for pulling. That worm gear assembly is impressive. It has a "wet" clutch and only one pedal. First half of the push is clutch, then straight into brakes. Fun machine to drive.

This is not a smart aleck comment in any way. These tractors were known as widow makers because of their ability to flip over backwards. Their best use is as a static display. I love the feel of horsepower also but these engines are to be admired from a distance.. Now watching a steam traction engine --- bring it on .
