Default Minneapolis Universal Farm Motor

This photo is NOT the exact tractor in question and all credit goes to who took the picture ( I'm fairly positive they aren't the same at least...)

Our show The Lake Region Pioneer Threshermans Association used to have a Minneapolis Universal Farm motor at the show. Here is a write up from our 1971 show book

"This picture is of the Minneapolis Universal 15-30 2-Cylinder opposed. It was the first gas tractor sold in Elbow Lake in 1911 to Henry T. Hensen. Sold in 1918 to John Colman, Edwin Gilberts and Joe Reeser and used until 1928. Bought and restored in 1958 by David Hansen."

So! My question is, does anyone know where this local gem has landed after all these years?
