A Martinson got it to post on 161. I think it is a B, not an E. Possibly the same tractor as the Wisconsin Hist. one.

is the oldest ( other then Kerosene Annie) model B today and where is the oldest model E
Here is a couple pictures and a little article I found from a July 1919 "tractor world "magazine.

The article is all about the Wichita Show. it was the 9th annual four-day national tractor farming demonstration

Anyway the description is hard to read so I will type it out.
"Advance-Rumely show first tractor"
One of the most interesting exhibits onthe demonstration field from the view-point of many manufacturers was the "Old No. 1," a first tractor built by the Advance-Rumely Thresher Co., which is owned by a farmer from North Dakota. The machine has been used since it was built by this owner and was brought to Wichita by Advance-Rumely company to exhibit its mechanical condition and its serviceablity. the machine was worked every day in the fields other tractor and it had ample power and did all work for which a tractor of its type could be practically used efficiently and economically.

So Rumely apparently was considering Kerosine Annie a prototype and this Old No. 1 as the first production Rumely.
Since they were aware of where the tractor was do any of you think this one might have survived or just worked untill it could work no more? the pictures of it look very similar to the one in post #70 by Randy Kvill except for the exhaust. maybe it is the same?

TSeaberg,
Rumely used "Old No. One" in some of their advertising. In 1919 it was owned by Mr. Frank Schultz at Agar, SD who got it new in 1910!

thanks for the info! They must have had a typo in 1919 when making this article saying it was from North Dakota...

So the question is what happened between 1919 and now with Old No. 1?

My great-grandfather was Frank Schultz from Agar, South Dakota and he was in the Rumley Oil Pull - Old No. 1 Still Going Strong Ad. He bought the tractor in 1909 and took the tractor to the Wichita National Tractor Demonstration in 1919. I'm working on research to give my father as we don't know what happened to Old No. 1.
If you have any information please let me know.

This early 30-60 S followed us home a few months ago. It was still setting in the sawmill it was used in. It was only about 30 miles from our home. Can't believe we never heard about it until recently.

We don't know where no 1 ended up. My grandmother said it was in a museum, but we don't know much else.
