Default Worldwide Veteran Tractor Register

Some of you may know that I’ve been maintaining a register of early tractors surviving in Europe. Well now, due to popular demand (ok, one or two people ), I’ve extended it worldwide:

http://www.steel-wheels.net/register.html

Basically I’m including all makes and models of tractor introduced before 1930, but I’ve had to exclude some of the more common ones such as the Fordson F, John Deere D (solid flywheel), Case C & L, etc. due to the number of surviving examples to keep track of.

If you’d like to add your tractor to the register, or you can add some info about a tractor already listed in there, then please me know, either here or via email (david@steel-wheels.net). Or, if you’ve recorded the details of a tractor at a show or museum, or in a magazine, then please also let me know. Hopefully, those people who are currently maintaining registers for particular makes of tractor can be persuaded to add them to the list to make it as comprehensive as possible.

To deal with the privacy side of things, I’m not including the owner’s name or exact location in the listing unless they’ve given permission to do so - just the US state or the European country for example. If you’re submitting information about your tractor, perhaps you could let me know how much detail you would like displayed.

David

Thanks very much, Randy - I've added a few tractors from the RAM that were mentioned previously on the forum, but it would be great to have a more comprehensive list.

All the best

Hi, David Parfitt.
Man, you are one ambitious soul. If it any help to you - or maybe a bit more of your spare time gone out the window - there is a gentleman posting under the name of Chriscokid over on the Antique Caterpillar Machinery Owner's Club bulletin board who is doing some similar work:

http://www.acmoc.org/

and click on 'Bulletin Board' in the black line about 2/3 of the way up the page. Select 'Discussion' on the next page that opens. You will need to register to post there

Here is a link to the actual thread:

http://www.acmoc.org/bb/showthread.p...ls-Please-Help!

Hope this helps.

You have a wonderful day. Best wishes. Deas Plant.

Thanks Deas. I've been in touch with Erik in the past, and he has used some of my photos within his register. I really need to update my own list though with some of the new information he has gathered.

All the best

David

Hi, David Parfitt.
I also have a fair collection of photos of various tractors that include the serial numbers where I could find them. Trouble is, I don't know who the owners of many of these machines are/were when and where I took the photos.

A lot of them were taken at the Best Show On Tracks at Woodland, California, in June, 2008, and quite a few more were taken at the Best Of The West show at Santa Margarita, California, in June this year. How-wevver, a pretty high percentage of the exhibitors were so proud of their machines and/or their handywork on those machines that they didn't even bother to put their names on them.

I made an effort to cover all makes and models at both shows and include serial number plates where I could find them. Since the BSOT, I have also made the effort to try to find and photograph the serial number plates of all the tractors that I photograph for the record.

I have not had time to catalogue and name all these photos and doubt I ever will but you are welcome to them if you think they may be of any use to you. All I would need would be a snail mail address to send them to you on DVD's. I have also made this same offer to Erik for his register.

That's very kind of you Deas, thanks. Perhaps it would be worth seeing if Erik takes you up on your offer first, as he has more knowledge of these makes/models and may be able to recognize who owns some of them? I do have a listing that was produced after the BSOT with quite a few names and serial numbers, which I can email to you if you don't have a copy already.

I think I may have spoken to you at the BSOT! I remember talking to an Australian fellow who was snapping loads of photos like me - he had a plaster or bandage on, I think. Could that have been you?

All the best

David

Hi, David Parfitt.
I hope all is well with you as it is with me.

That may well have been me at with the busy camera at BSOT.

I am supposed to be meeting with Erik Christenbury at the ACMOC show at Brooks, Oregon, on the last weekend of July where I will give him a remote hard drive with around 94 GB of photos, videos and data. You are welcome to consult with him about what if any of it may be of use to you and arrange with him for transfer of any or all of it.

I am hoping to have more photos with serial numbers and, where possible, details of owners from the up-coming Woodland and Bonner Springs, Kansas, shows on that hard drive by the time I hand it over to Erik.

If your offer of the listings from the BSOT show still stands, I would appreciate a copy of it.

Catchyalater.

You have a wonderful day. Best wishes. Deas Plant.

I copied David's stuck Tractor Registry and opened it in the regular forum.
Stuck threads sometimes (ALWAYS) become invisible and get no attention.
Even I wasn't aware of the fabulous registry David has compiled.
I hope this encourages even more tractors to be added......

Dear David Right now I am confined to a rehab center after I fell off the Case 1200 and broke my left Femur. [Doing real good] Looks like I will finally get some time to finish my Fordson Book series. Today ,Christmas day ] my wife brought in the latest copies of Ant.-Pow. and Farm Collector and found a good little writeup on The Bear Crawler in which Sam Moore mentioned you several times. Question is how many are still in existence?? I know of one in Maine [no name of owner] , mine here in CT that came from Maine, A heavy duty version in a collection in Ohio that came from Maine, the one in England, and the one sold at Oscars auction [did JR buy that one???] That's it from me right now. I have heard rumors of others but never confirmed their existence.
On this beautiful Christmas day 2014 I'm wishing you and yours a great holiday season and an even better 2015. Ed B "The Yankee"

Ed, in answer to your question about Oscar's Bear Crawler, It is indeed now part of JR's parking lot collection. There is a picture of it being lifted into position on the thread about that collection. F.J.W.

Hello Ed

All the best to you both too, and hope you are back to full strength soon.

I only know of four Bear crawlers, so the Maine one is news to me. I would be very interested to see a pic of this one and the one now in Ohio. As Frank said, the ex-Oscar Cooke Bear is now part of the Simplot collection and is going to be on display in Boise. The one that is now in a collection in the east of England came from the Stan Reynolds collection.

Best wishes

David

All the tractors that went to Illinois, went to the George Schaaf collection in Frankfort, Illinois. All these tractors, except the Hart-Parr 30-60 which he still has, sold at his sale in September of 2016.
