OK , I'll do it , I would like to nominate my 1960's Moto-Mower I got this tractor from a great friend of mine way back in 1992.
we decided to biuld and operate an r/c race track and needed a tractor to groom with. well the engine was shot and rapped like crazy. I took it off and brought it to an engine shop that I knew was incredible, (had nascar titles for his engines on the walls and did an Olds engine for me that was rediculous) anyways it was bored and balanced and I reassembled it and put it back in . Well that engine has many many hours on it pulling a roller, water wagon and center grader blade in very hostile conditions and it is still going strong today! Starts every time and pulls like crazy! Oh and its only a 8 hp Kohler. Right now she is over to my brother's house being used to pull around his clean up trailer , as both his Deeres (212's) dont run LOL .
In one picture (poor pic of the tractor , but it had just come off the track after a grooming session that the fellow I am giving the trophy to won.
That is what old ugly American iron is all about ! That tractor is probably dang near 50 years old and still working harder than any new pressed tin rig could ever do.

WVBUZZMASTER (Casey) asked for more info, so here it is.


I bought this tractor from Casey this spring at the FCVAEC Plow Day. It took 6 guys, one tractor and a lot of headshaking with laughter to get this thing off Casey's trailer and onto mine. If I'd have known how little it would take to drive it, I would've saved everyone a lot of trouble.


To date I have done very little to this. I added Gas, checked fluids, pumped up the tires and turned the still working key. Motor sounds good, tranny works, (the Hydro Handle mechanism could use a little adjustment tho). I had a lot of fun today taking the video of it moving on it's own power with the ghost driver, and want to thank Casey for selling it to me. If nothing else, it was money well spent to have the fun!

Here's the pics of her when Casey found her.

Hey Alan, I think it looks uglier now than when I brought it home LOL. I really shoulda sent the grill with it, but that was the only piece of sheet metal not even scratched LOL. I think you should slap a new seat on it and use it. Oh, and I will give you the grille next time I see you lol.
