Well I have to add to Beatngu's post.  This was loaded on that very nice red LJ with the big chrome bumper.  Its an 841 Ford with an Elanco driving front axle. Hate to admit it, but 50+ years ago I was working my way through school working for a contractor and we had such a Ford-with a 14' backhoe.  Back then about the only 4 wd loader backhoes were big buck DynaHoes. But this little Ford was a working machine. Also had a set of brush forks-no such thing as grapples then- as well as a York rake.  The backhoe took about 5 minutes to swap out.  Only issue with the front axle was I believe there was a shear pin that would fail-not too sure about that.

In any case, like the LJ, this tractor is mint-unfortunately didn't get the owners name but he should be very proud of the Mack and the Ford!

I gotta ask, where did you get the vintage Goodyear diamond tread steers and drive tires for your beautiful B73?

I liked the flathead Ford v8 option on the old Ford tractors! The farmer with that would be the envy of his neighbors!

I too would like to know where the vintage diamond tread tires came from.  I like the steer tires on the J. Wojtowicz truck as well.  I need a set of old school bias plys for my E model.  If anybody has a source, please tell.

both Goodyear diamond tread steers and diamond side traction tires seem to be appearing, surely there cant be this huge storage container with all old nos tires in it that aren't dry rotted?????  for driving I prefer tubeless radials cause you can get one anywhere but for astetics there is nothing like the look of a sidewall of a tube type bias ply
