Hey BigDave, I was aware of the Cletrac/Avery/MontgomeryWard/Co-op combination, but what was the connection with Massey Harris ??? I'm not remembering that model.... :? :? Then in the 50's wasn't Avery purchased by Minniapolis Moline ??BigDaveinKY said:Bruce is right. The B.F. Avery Plow Co. contracted Cletrac to build a tractor they designed,
to fit a new line of implements they were developing, to compete with the Ferguson 3 pt system.
The General model GG was born, and sold by Cletrac, Avery, Massey Harris, Co-op, and Montgomery Ward,
in different colors and names. Later Avery purchased the rights to build it themselves, and renamed it the Model A.
Cletrac continued to build it as well for a time, but only under the Avery model A name.
