Default 6 - 12 beats all

i am going to try to attach a photo of a homebuilt tractor we just acquired. It is powered by a model A engine , trans, rearend. It was built by Chas. baal in SHerrill iowa. His son is still alive and remembers building it. It was built for a cost of $205.00 for a farmer that had 16 acres. I live about 2 miles from where it was built new.

I'll bet it would take Hulk Hogan to operate it.

Hi tony, the tractor will be on display On october 6 & 7 at the FAll HARVEST DAYS & PUMPKIN FESTIVAL in SHERRILL IOWA. In fact the tractor is featured on this years button. The tractor was built by the local blacksmith and his son here in sherrill, the son is 96 years old and he will be at the show, with bobsled they built years ago.
It was built for a small farmer for a cost of $205. they named their creation 6-12 beats all, some of teh stenciling is still visible on the hood. We are the fifth owners, and are very glad to have it back home. We also have a picture of it when it was finished being built ( i think it was in the 30's) my dad knows for sure. it was originally on steel. It really does not drive to bad, but is not much for traction. everyone is invited to attend or display at the show on oct. 6&7 we are expecting a nice show, and it is a great time of year for a drive. email for more info. oldagiron@yousq.net
