Need help to indentify old tractor

Recommended Posts

All I have at the moment are these three pictures, any help to identify this old tractor much appreciated.

The fellow who gave me the pictures believes the tractor is of English origin.

The rear Power King Towmax tires kinda make me think this tractor once lived a life as an aircraft tug, then some ingenious person added the FEL, the hydraulic pump installation does not look like a factory installation.

I'm going to pass it forward, have a buddy that lives in St. Anne MB that has an Allis 720 and I think that he'll jump on this just for the front end loader.

It's a 3 hour drive for me with only an hour for him.

Credits go to rustyiron from another forum that I belong to, the tractors best match is Terramite.

The guy from St Anne doeent want it, the owner is asking $50.00. It will probably end up as part of my collection.

Interesting tractor and story.

But I don't get the "postal jeep" connection.

 

From the protruding axle nut I was able to identify the parts donor, both Canada and the US postal services used the Kaiser Jeep for rural delivery, from  pictures of the engine the owner had sent me it was obviously a General Motors 4 cylinder nick named the Iron Duke.

Grumman delivery vans to this day still us this engine, Mercruser and OMC had marine versions,

The Duke is a sturdy five main bearing engine, its claim to fame was durability, and economy.

Since the tractor was home made we were unable to identify its maker.
