I found a 1974/5 photo of my dad's old Overtime today in a box! We have not seen the tractor since it was sold to the US in the 80s any one seen her lately?

I hope she having a nice time!

Re: Overtime in 1974

William, could this be the tractor your Father had? I took this picture of the Overtime while visiting the mid-west. It was in a small shed so it was hard to get a good picture. This is the only one I know of here in the States.

Re: Overtime in 1974

There is an Overtime Model R in the States that has appeared in several JD books and is owned by Scott McAllister of Mt Pleasant, Iowa. That one is given as #4582 though.

Wayne, how long ago was your photo taken? The pictures I have seen of Scott McAllister's tractor show it freshly restored, so I was wondering if that could be the one in your picture?

Re: Overtime in 1974

David, the picture was taken last year. I do not have the ser # and would have to dig around and see if I could come up with just where it was that I seen it. We were in 22 different states in a 2 week period.

Re: Overtime in 1974

Hello William,

Can you tell me more on the story off that tractor? Was it this tractor that was damaged when a building was bombed during ww2 or was it a Waterloo Boy that came from the UK to Iowa as well and that loves his retirement in my shed for the moment?
I would love to know what the Waterloo was bought for, as it is mechanically still brand new today.
Marc.

Re: Overtime in 1974

Hi Marc
Sound good that the tractor was damaged when a building was bombed during ww2 but I think it was in a hedge getting rusty by then!

Yes it was a overtime, my dad got it unrestored from Norman Vince from Norfolk in around 1970 he think he paid around £200 for it, then he restored it properly to mechanically brand new!
He then got a mad crazy fever:crazy: in the early 80s so in 1982 Cheffins sold it:faint:and it started its world tour!

Sound like it got a good home at the moment, Can I come and have a look some day?

Re: Overtime in 1974

Hello William,

I bought the Overtime and the Waterloo Boy in Iowa which both came from the UK.
However I only kept the Waterloo Boy and traded the Overtime.
I'm sure one off these tractors was damaged by bombs. I think the front axle broke but cannot find the story back. As I see no repairs to the Waterloo, it might have been the Overtime.
I'll check if the man still has the Overtime.
Kind regards,

Marc.

Re: Overtime in 1974

William,
The tractor Marc and I made a trade for now belongs to my wife and resides in our collection here in Michigan. It's a good running tractor, I was curious about the restoration. It definitely sat outside a long time in as the heavy rust pits will testify. it needs only a few parts replaced to make it right, like the front wheels which are from an auto steer model and a new fan spider, which was fabricated. The tractor went to Paul Bollinger's Waterloo Boy reunion last July and we had a "nice time" with the Overtime! If you're ever in the states and want to get reaquainted with the old girl, look us up.

Re: Overtime tractor in 1974

Say lads?
We had an old neighbour who had been born in Scotland. He passed away about 5 years ago and must have been over 90. He had a Waterloo Boy tractor on his place and it is still in Ontario.
He also had a lot of stories about working that tractor and even more stories of just about everything!:O But one of his tales was from when he was a lad still on his father's farm in Scotland. He said a gentleman called at their place one day and was a block man or traveller for a farm implement company and he was selling Overtime-Waterloo Boy tractors. That man's name was Harry Ferguson! Yes, THAT Mr. Ferguson, at least according to my neighbour.
Just wondering if any of you gentlemen from over 'ome could verify whether the esteemed Mr. Ferguson had been an agent for Overtime?
Merci beaucoup,
G.
