http://chicago.craigslist.org/nch/grd/4984387010.htmlGraham-Paige Tractor...(12 photos on the above address)Have any of you heard of this brand 2-wheel Tractor?This says "vintage Simplicity" on the heading but I think not. But this is a 1946-48 tractor in fair condition for the age. Looks like a cool engine design, updraft carb, big air cleaner, very odd muffler, steel wheels...I'd pay 1/2 that just to own that cool pc of history 8D

Defi itely a Frazier....I have a coworker who restores them. They are monsters...look more like military rquipent than a walk behind tiller. He has some neat attachments and even one with tracks.

I'd take half that for one I've got sitting here. I guarantee it is badly stuck from the look of the muffler. They are a two stroke and the cylinder port is directly behind it, any water goes right in. They are super heavy tillers, outweigh many riders!:D

Just my observations...

the earlier iron wheels, would not only provide excellent traction in wet soil and/or clay, but break up any clods in their way. and be self cleaning.

The early models seen to have a differential which activated from the handle bar pivot. distributing power from one wheel to the other.

No idle hands here with all those controls on the handle bars.

Interesting machine, and history!

I guess Kaiser-Frazer sedans could be considered the first of the Utility vehicles since the rear of the cabin along with the trunk structure could be opened to carry all kinds of material.
