I have a 1924 Packard that has been converted into a tractor, using a Shure Track Conversion. This was a kit, manufactured in Vancouver, Wa shipyards, in the late '30s. Unusual to see a Packard Doodlebug, more rare to see the Shure Conversion kit.

Starts and runs terrific, as you would expect.

Includes the original Motometer, Packard engine/trans/rearend, and most of its gauges original dash equipment.

I've enjoyed taking this around to tractor shows in Washington, for the past couple of years. It has been in several parades as well as shows in Lynden, Anacortes, Monroe and Toledo Washington, along with other Doodlebugs from the back yard.

But its time to share it with someone else.

Actually, the Ford, (yellow), is available, also. It is a Ford, Model T worm drive rearend with wood spoke wheels, Model A front axle with Wire wheels. All good tires. Both front and rear axles have been narrowed. Starts and runs readily. It is short enough that it rides sideways, allowing both machines to fit on my 16' flatbed trailer.

Also have others...
