    My mother in law still has one of those. It used to run great. She is 88 so has not driven it in the last 15 years.

    Grew up driving my Gramps. My Dad like Farmalls. As long as I didn't have to hook up the horses, I took either one.

    Re: Ford Tractor

    I actually bought the Ferguson equivalent (with the Standard-Triumph motor of course) a couple of years back.

    But you can bet I tie it down a lot better than that! Only one nylon strap to the rear is playing with fire.

    I can't find the link now, but I saw a photo just the other day of an antique tractor that broke loose and rammed into the tow vehicle. Made a mess of both of them! The rear wheels were touching the back of the pickup truck, so I'm guessing the nose hit the back of the cab.

    I don't have any "beauty" photos of my little Gray Fergie, as it's not done yet. But here's a shot of the business end



    Lots of differences, but the engine does bear a family resemblance

    I guess that would be considered a real "Tractor Motor".
