Default Homebuilt Tractor photo

Here is something I've never seen before.... I'm driving to Ft. Lewis for my job and have my camera with me. At about noon today I passed this thing on I-94 west just as it crossed from N Dakota into Montana....
Does anybody know anything more???
Thanks and enjoy the photo.

An early mudbogger! Just add alcohol, blower and nitrous!
Everybody needs one, I have a few here at home, don't you?
The perfect transportation on a muddy dirt road!

How long will you be at Fort Lewis ????

We have a show at Iron Ranch the 3rd week end of July. You can stop by anytime if you wish, if you can not make the show. We are located just off of I-5. Only a couple of hours South of Fort Lewis.

I think you might enjoy a day at the Ranch.

Jim

Pretty Cool !

Looks like maybe somebody got tired of puttin' around with their Model T Ford Tractor conversion and put together a "Modern" version of it.

There was a picture in the local paper a couple months ago about an old time 'preachers' car that looked like it started life as a Model T ford and had a set of old high wheel wagon wooden wheels added to it for more ground clearance. If I can find it again I'll try to scan it into the confuser and post a copy of it here.

Judging by the styling of the "toter" and some sort of intuition, my guess is that that "home made tractor" is actually a mud racer!

It's a 46 to 48 Ford 4 door with bigger wheels and different fenders. Note the wing vent windows on front doors and behind rear doors. I love that design and wish cars today had that. I've driven and ridden many 100,000 miles in these and with a Columbia overdrive they would do anything a modern driver today needs and with more comfort and less noise than most new ones.

It's not a large show, BUT a very friendly one. Great folks from the area and some from up around your area stop by as well as Cal. and Az. Idaho and other places.

We show tractors, engines, most everything. All of the buildings are open to view the other stuff we don't take out for the show.

There will be live steam which includes an 800 HP Twin City Corliss, and the steam donkey. The Russell will be fired as well. Steam drag saws, etc.

Dry camping is available.

Hope to see you here on the 3rd weekend of July.

Jim

Jim, thanks for the invite but I can't make it this year,,, unless my plans are changed for me again. Right now I'm transporting equipment to Fort Lewis and once done I have to leave right away since I'm on their clock. I was supposed to stay there from 1 July to mid August but that got changed for me. If it changes again I'll keep this in mind.
I will be volunteering for 45 days again next summer so maybe I can get there some time.
Thanks again
-Phil-
