I just picked up this Structo made "Cletrac" Crawler. At least it resembles a Cletrac to me... I am not much of a pressed tin model guy, but I liked this one. It came with the wagon as well...However, the tongue has minor damage.

The windup even works and it moves along nicely.

I know Ford made a postdrill and grinder that hooked on the 3 point hitch. Anyone have one of these or a brochure picture of one? There is a pictue of one in Farm collector magazine but its not very good and not hooked on the tractor.

I have noticed a few early (20's & 30's) tractors with some unique electrical systems that allow use of large, flat lense,6 volt headlights.
Looked at an F-30 cane tractor that had a gear driven generator, battery box, nice original lights, all plumbed together with old style cloth covered wires....
The gear driven generator that I am posting is off of a 1932Twin City 21-32 industrial. There were a few KTA's that had these also.
Does anyone have pictures of early electrical systems that they could post?

Here are a few scans from a neat 40 page "catalog" called "Specialty and Personal Advertising for McCormick-Deerong Dealers" I am just showing some of the toys but they offered everthing from signs, posters, yardsticks, thermometers, needle cases, watch fobs, oil cans (.08 ea) to tractor umbrellas at $3.25 ea. It is undated but by the toys it must be in the 30s. Did not scan the "Large Red Baby Truck that sold for $4.00 made by Buddy L. The made in Freeport toys are by Arcade. Sure like to buy those toys at those prices.

Here are some recognizable tractor toys, First one is the cast iron McCormick Industrial tractor like the catalog cut in the above post. Next is my favorite, the Bates Steel Mule, a fragile tin German toy. The Cat 10 is an Arcade cast iron toy and last a Sheppard Diesel which must be quite rare as there were not many of the big tractors made. Notice 3 of them have the original drivers which were lost on many of the toys that survived. Believe the Sheppard never had a driver.

Here are a few pics of the 1/16 Heider....Weighs in around 15 lbs... Can be displayed with or without the canopy.

I was just sent a few photos of a 1/64 Hart Parr Model made by Ertl that I sent to a friend to weather...I think he did a pretty good job. I should have it back next week...

I had these ceramic mugs made with a very nice Twin City logo on both sides.
If you think it is Christmas all year long, you can get anything you want in green & red, but I dwell in a gray area and whenever I want Twin City accessories I have to make them myself.
In an effort to obtain a "reasonable price", I had to get 72 of them made. I will keep a bunch of them to use, and for gifts for special collector friends.
You are welcome to contact me if intrested in some of the extras

A line went down to oil gally on lower end of block to feed oil up to the pop up unit, that would protrude through a hole in the hood for operator to see.
A unique option available in the late 20's for a short time
Come to think about it, the T/C 17/28 that I recently made a deal on has that same pop up oil presure gauge.

Hi Jim,
I like your watch!
That TC fob is about the same vintage and makes a great pair!


Rick,
Those Pop up oil pressure pins show up on TC tractors from 1926 to about 1930 and then they are gone again

Here's some Cletrac items I have collected over the years. I have yet to see another Cletrac pocket knife or walking cane. I have an original company letter to prove the authenticity of the cane.

The front wheel scrapers asked about a while back were very popular in this area for many years. The ones we have were from my dads row crops, whenever he got a different tractor he always kept the special acessories. I have several different ones that were made by the Yetter co. They made them to fit most tricycle trators of the time. They are still in business and make a variety of attachments for planters and tillage tools. F. J. W.

Tony; Thanks for all of your information & pictures. We have a tiny Heider like that. It has Heider Rock Island on the radiator in real clear tiny letters just like the full sized tractor. I got it on EBay. It is, obviously not from China or Japan. We also have the 1/16 scale which I bought from an old schoolmate who lives in Rock Island. Our plan is to temporarily mount the 1/16 in a plexiglass display box on the fender of the full sized tractor and mount the little 1/64 on the fender of the 1/16. For static display only to be removed before starting. They are at my son's place though the big full sized tractor is here. Someday I could get a detailed picture.

Wow! I can't imagine trying to drive that trencher down the road on those tracks. We use two track tractors on the farm operation I work for (Cat Challenger and a Deere) and they are not my favorite drivers on the road. However I wouldn't trade them in the field. I wonder how 20 mph would be without an air ride seat????
