Or at least as done as it is going to get for a while. Had a blast with it down at hiltonhead and have driven it around a few times since. Got a Brinley plow and found a set of discs for it that look pretty good. Ive attached a picture (I hope)

You did a very nice job on that! It is one neat looking rig and I'm sure it gets lots of looks where ever you take it. You done good!

That's a very cool machine! There's a similar rig in the latest issue of LAGC called a Palomino. I showed my wife the picture and told her I NEED one of these! She just looked at me like I'd grown a 3rd eye. I like the mini Jeep look that they have! Great work!

Case Guy, if you are in any way serious, we are always looking for another Crosley collector. By the way, I have a son in Butler, a daughter in Slippery Rock, and the president of our Pa.Region for the Crosley Club is in Ford City. You can find more information on Crosleys on our web site, www.crosleyautoclub.com . If you need more information than you find there, you can always contact me through the web site. Crosleys are a lot of fun and not too much more expensive than a garden tractor. Same type of guys you find here, and like the guys here, most of them do their own work.
Here's another ic of my wife and I with the FOR at Hilton Head.

Dave A, I missed your first photo, glad you updated today. Looks great. Nice job.

Dave, Thanks for the reply. I wouldn't say that I'm in the market for anything at the moment (kinda broke right now LOL). I am interested though. I'll keep my eye out for them around here and if one comes available i'd certainly go look at it!

By the way, I have a son in Butler, a daughter in Slippery Rock, and the president of our Pa.Region for the Crosley Club is in Ford City.


I am within an hour of both Butler and Slippery Rock, I'm not familiar with Ford City though.

You can find more information on Crosleys on our web site, www.crosleyautoclub.com . If you need more information than you find there, you can always contact me through the web site. Crosleys are a lot of fun and not too much more expensive than a garden tractor. Same type of guys you find here, and like the guys here, most of them do their own work.


Thanks for the link and for the offer of assistance, should I need it! Those are very cool machines!

Here's another ic of my wife and I with the FOR at Hilton Head.


Thank you for taking the time to post the picture!

I thought I'd give you guys an update. Here is the latest picture from the last day in the canvas shop. I have the dual rear tractor wheels done and will install shortly. Right now it is back to the paint shop for touch up of a few mistakes. Then I will install the new wiring harness. I have to replace a batch of bolts that don't quite match the correct originals. April 9 it will make its show debut at the AACA show at the Charlotte Auto Fair in Charlotte NC. It is also scheduled for show at the Hemmings concours in Vermont, Monmouth County Concours in NJ, and possibly at Hilton Head in November. I have a busy Summer ahead.DSC05948.jpg

Dave, when is the Hemmings concours in Vermont scheduled for? I live in NH and would like to go if it fits in my work schedule. Nice job on your rig. I look forward to seeing it in Vermont if I can make it.

Tinkerer, there is an open car show on Saturday the 16th of July followed by the Concours on the 17th. I should have the Farm o Road in both shows. When you stop by, be sure to introduce yourself and bring your camera so you can get your picture taken sitting in it!!!
Texas Deere...thanks for the comments, I don't know what the tractor of the month contest is, but when I take my finished pictures for PennDot, I can send one in for that also!!!
