Basically, I just wanted to build an old crawler that looked like it had been sitting for fifty years. The basic tractor is done, but I'm thinking of adding a hitch and a plow to it later on.

WOW, that looks great, Chuck, and clearly an original addition to your collection. I haven't seen too many vehicles like it on the tables. Congrats.

Let your imagination reign. Homebuilt tractors have always been common and this is a well done example of what might have been.
