They are truly awesome tractors to drive. When driving the Little Log House tractor, it is so big it becomes dangerous to drive alone. My wife usually goes along side the engine to watch the front wheels so no kids run in front of it.

Just a note to make sure the story is even more clear. Morris would have acquired this chassis from the original Reynolds Museum owned by Mr. Stan Reynolds. After Mr. Reynolds completed his gift to the Province of Alberta, he began to sell off surplus machines in the interest of expanding his aviation collection a large part of it is now part of the Reynolds-Alberta Museum, owned and operated by the Province of Alberta.

With the amount of progress done in such a short time, it obviously went to a good home.

Keep us posted on the progress.

Thanks for the link.

Are there any (30's) that are not listed on David's list?

Bubbles, I'm sure there are more, and I'm sure that some of the Big Four aficionados that will be reading this thread will chime in.

Way to go Allan. We saw your tractor at the hastings show this year and took a picture of out son Emerson with the restored tractor. Maybe you would be kind enough to give us a ride on it when you get it done. Can't wait to see the finnished product and glad it stayed local and did not go over the pond.
