Hello Everyone,

 

I have been given a nice project for my sons and I to work on after finishing the Massey Ferguson MF10 a couple of years ago.  We also did a rough job of a Ford 9N this past year.  But this one will be special.  Its a Jaques Frazer Model T.  Just got it home and looking forward to starting the work.  Unfortunately I'm not allowed to touch it for a while as I have a suite to build above my garage first!   

 

The tractor has been garage kept for the last 25 years since the previous owner's husband passed away.  It will be a complete tear down and rebuild.  I think it has everything except the hood.  Will have to look around for that, or a spare P-51 airplane drop tank, which is what it was made from originally!  

 

Anyone else on here dealt with these tractors?  I've seen a bit online but they seem pretty rare.

I just had to do research on that tractor when you said that it was made partly from a p51 drop tank.  And that is what I came up with too.  That tank on the one I saw looks really small to be made from a drop tank. Hope to learn more about it.  Love those old tractors.

Its the hood that is made from the drop tank, not the fuel tank. I've never seen a drop tank before though.
