Default Truly a Dump Save a Cletrac EN!

I was at my local Dump the other day as I drove in I notice the pay loader about to un load a Bolens 1050 tractor off a pick up truck to put in the metal dumpster. I ran over and asked if I can have it ? They said sure and if you want the mower deck follow us home and you can have it also. So we loaded the Bolens on my truck and I followed them home.(see pict) After we loaded the deck on my truck they asked me if I would be interested in a Bulldozer ? I said what kind is it they said they didn't know it was in the garage for years and one day 3 years ago they towed it out of the garage and put it outside and put a tarp over it . So we walked over and took off the tarp to see what it was. Its s Cletrac Model EN they were going to call a junk man to pick it up if I wanted it its yours just get it out of here I said Thanks ! I will take it and I will be back later with my trailer to get it. ( see picts). I don't know much about these machines and there value but would love to here anyone's input on this model Cletrac.

Now I need to look for my Cletrac serial number list. Going by memory here but about all the models were streamlined in1938 or 39 so this tractor is before that. The engine is the OO series Hercules, C being the designator for the bore of the engine. Now I need to do some research on Cletrac information I have forgotten. There were not many narrow ones!

The tractor should be a 1935 model. A very few were built in1934.

Has anyone ever seen tracks like these ? I haven't . The rubber is sandwiched between the metal. Were these special tracks for some purpose ?

rubber street pads. the rubber would have completely covered the steel 1/2 to 1" thick.
