Oh, really and truly. And I thought this was a family-friendly site.
But why a Case tractor, and not a Ford?
It’s almost certain it was because that’s what they had on hand. I’d not be surprised at all if both tractor and truck were rusting hulks in the back fence row before someone had a brainstorm and said, “Here, hold my beer.” Farm Show magazine is full of stuff like this.
Inquiring minds want to know-
Is it LS powered?
Looks like a Ford truck had a fling with a Case that had a Minneapolis Moline UDLX in its DNA.
I thought Ford tractors were gray.
It’s a Case tractor.
I like it. In a weird sort of way.
If you can hook up a good heater, a/c unit and a stereo, this makes a lot of sense to me.
So, I can make a Case for it, if its afFordable.
I like it, but it looks like I’d need lessons from the Duke boys to enter & exit the cab. 😉
Thank you. You just answered the question I was about to ask but now don’t need to. It always pays to read previous posts!
Looks like something from the “Cars ” franchise: Mater’s long-lost cousin, perhaps.
Paint it green with yellow wheels and everyone will want one.
The styling is rather busy, but it’s still appealing to me somehow.
PRNDL/Canard – Usually access is from the rear for these. If somehow it’s not, I’d vote for a hatch in the roof! 🙂
Hardboiled – So true. I’m admittedly a fan of those tractors, but my friends and I always say, JD Green is the color of money.
Run what ya brung!
I can’t find any words to describe this… this… thing.
I can say this, though: At least one nice truck was sacrificed for this.
Growing up in western PA. In a farming area I ran across a farmer who would love this! As in most States I am sure, farmers can legally drive tractors on the highway to travel from field to field regardless of drivers licence status or license plate.
This particular farmer lost his license probably till the end of time. So he put a 283 Chevy motor in an IH tractor, changed the gearing, and viola, had a tractor that would do 55 mph. He’d drive to the tavern. Park it in a field nearby and party. Pennsylvania State Police where,NOT amused. His rouse was finally busted, when he of course, was busted yet again for DUI. Believe this time it involved prison time. Moved away after that, never did hear we what happened to him.
