Over at the Yesterdays Tractor site there is a neat tractor for sale made with many 1926 Model T Ford parts.Nice picture,rare tractor,and expensive!! Bud.
I shoulda bought the remnants of a Shaw I saw a few years ago for 400 bucks. But no,I had to wring my hands and think, "oh I have to many projects". Not many of the Shaw kits are around.
Oh ! A Shaw was a conversion kit ?? You fellers got any pictures ?
Can be seen here:
20K??!!! Are you kidding me?!! Laughable.
Hope springs eternal. I have no idea what the market is on vintage tractors - I do know there's a lot of interest, and I've seen some remarkable collections locally.
That guy obviously likes that tractor more than I would so I'm gonna let him keep it.
I think it's a steal!! Here are my girls.
I often watch the tractor auction on the rfd channel and anything high crop usually fetches big money.About two weeks ago there was a model AA doodlebug for sale on the same site but i can't seem to buy them for 50.00 anymore.Bud.
Love your tractors Michael. They can live in my garage anytime.
I saw a nice restored Montgomery Ward conversion bring 15,000 at a estate sale a few years ago. I also saw a rusty pile of the remains of a tractor conversion bring 7500.00 at an old tractor/hit miss engine sale not long ago. So while 20,000 is too rich for me, it may not really be that crazy of a price . ???? The tractor conversions are very hard to find anymore .... Im lucky I bought mine back when they were still somewhat reasonable ...
Here is a pic of my Montgomery Ward conversion I bought for 400.00 and thought I got a very good deal ..
Here it is now, All I need to do to finish it up is mount the re-built rear end and re-bush the rear wheels. Then go plow the garden .
Thanks for sharing that Bud. I really like seeing all the tractor conversions of the model T. I agree with you, too rich for me to have as a play toy.
To tell the truth Gary, i was shocked when i saw the picture! Close to 60 years ago i helped put up hay with a Shaw-Do All and i think the converson kit was a far better tractor than the do all?? Bud.
