This one was at the State Farmers Market tractor show yesterday. I 've never seen any workin' high-clearance Fords in this area. I don't know if many were made, but they are neat, and with the planter, make a very nice display :!: :D

I wonder if the gearing is different with those larger rears.
If not that thing would fly.

Thanks Jim for the pic. Don't remember ever seeing one around here.
theseplanters were used for tobbaco in western ont and most veg crops tomatoes pepper cole crops you can put disks on them to plant as close as 3 inches plus strawberry pockets for planting strawberry plants most were pull type with wheels easier to control planter plus had water tank with metering valve to give each plant a shot of water if set upright you can plant up to 2500 plants a hour with one row two operators new one built today are basicaly same design used here they sell at auctios for 200 to500 dollars

Jim that is a awsume looking tractor. Never seen wheels made like that. Did he happen to mention what kind of motor he had in it? The one thing that does look fimilar is the setter. I got a Holland just like it minus the paint. Looks like you all had a nice show.

I agree Gordon, that engine just don't look stock. :? As far as the setter, I've got one like you described, sittin' up in the barn lot too. ;)

That has a Funk type conversion kit to a 6 cylinder flathead Ford engine.

Very nice restoration on a Ford tractor that I had never seen before. Planter is nice too! Dusty hours planting cabbage on a two row comes flashing back into my mind. Must have been in love cause my girl friend at the time was helping in that same dirt and dust and is still my wife after 41 years. Time goes by fast on the planter and slow as molasses for the tractor driver. Dad sometimes fell asleep and the rows got a little crooked:)
Regards,
Chris
