Photo0255.jpg I would like to nominate my 1968 panzer 1107.

I got this tractor out of a barn in june of 2011. When i got it the tractor had a straight stack and 2 2x4s as a seat. The tractor also ran horrible. It would crack and pop and had no power. But that was all about to change.

Once i got the tractor it became my baby. I put the fenders on it, washed it, took the stack off, and got it to run perfect. Then on july 16-17 I took it to the fort allen antique farm equiptment assosiation summer fun fest and took 2nd place in ugliest tractor. I lost to a ford 8n t

hat someone painted with a mop and put flames on the hood than sat it outside for 30 years. This tractor is truly a ugly machine.

I haven't won it yet guys, and I sold it to Alan, so it will be a shared competitor. It also is not regulation yet, as it needs another paragraph, and a few other pieces of information that Alan will have to provide.


It also needs to be a fully drivable runner too. If it isn't running & driving, then it's not a valid entry. Heck, I have tons of junk that looks like that Massey.

I edited the first post to make note that an entry has to be a runner, capable of making it from point a to point b under it's own power, even if the distance between points is only 10 feet.

That's a shame you had to compete against farm tractors. At my local show, the GT's & farm tractors are judged separately.

Nominations are supposed to be running/driving units.


Alan said he had it running and moving, so that was enough for me. I am sure Alan will chime in later this evening. I didn't say the pics were current, they were the ones I took of it before rescuing it, and I know Alan hadn't posted any lol.

I would like to nominate my 1961 cub cadet original.I bought this sight unseen,when i got brought to my house from West Virginia,the steering column, cam follower was broken off fixed that both front tires were seized. Got them freed-up and time tried to start it.While my2 cans off pb blaster was soaking all the rusted bolts i took the tractor down to the frame and engine then put it back like it was.Iwas suprised that i did not round off or break any bolts. Time to start.

Getting it started was no problem but, getting it to move was. It would only go in 1st and reverse and had to take the shifter plate off and free-up shifting board. The only other thing I have done to it was re-build the carburator. The serial # on the tractor is 2359 which means it was produced in Feburary 1961.

I'm going to add my ugly one into the pot. It's a 1968 Sears SS12. I got it mid July this summer. It came with a Sears sickle bar mower, which
I am working on now. Also came with some part of what was a snowblower. It's all original, tires, engine. I've had it in the shop over the last
week, and have given it the once over. I've done a few alterations to it while it's been in the shop. As it was, as an original, it wasn't really
all that ugly, but now I think it could pass.

I've been telling my wife, that it's her new snowmobile. I've got some ugly looks for that. I plan on using it on hard pack trails, as toy, but the
main reason for the ski setup, and duals with chains, is to help me out in my mini winter logging hobby. I have a couple of swamps to cross, and
often they are slippery ice like a skating rink. My twin track snowmobile without studs in the track, just spins on that stuff. I'm hoping this SS12
will pick up the slack. We'll see. She starts and runs great. During the summer, I'll switch over to rubber on the front, and use it for sickle mowing
duty. I think it looks like some kind of a bug.

Wow, when I gave you my 1107 take-offs, I was hoping that the sheet metal was in better shape than what you had. Now, I know for sure that it was. Put a coat of teal paint on that stuff I have you and it'll make it do a complete turn-around and look great.
