This photo, taken in 59, with my little sister and brother aboard, is a tractor made out of part of a Road Grader. I'm trying to figure out what it "was."
When we got it from the "junker" it was the rear wheels, rear axle/ transmission, cast iron bellypan, and a Ford flathead 6, NOTHING else.
My father had the blade metal bend, cuts made on the plow arms, and the discs cutout for the lift winch and MADE the rest!!!
Front axle is out of a 34?--36?? Ford. (Big bolt pattern, cable brakes) Radiator ?? Dash cluster I think out of a Stude from the dump, Lord knows the fuell tank, and hood is home made. The plow hoist was brutal, an old worm drive steering box on the near wheel. It originally had duals, but the empty wheels were inboard of what you see
My Grandfather named the place "Ranch Atlasta" on the hood of the tractor. It lasted a couple of years, threw a rod, and Dad went on to a "man's tractor," the Farmall Regular
So if you would, concentrate on the rear, the belly, and the engine, although I do NOT know for certain that the engine was "factory." The idea of it would have looked similar to the old Ford tractor based graders, but that is not what this was
I'm guessing it was a cruder, older version of this
