1/2-Scale Replica Of A 1936 Deere G.P.
That's my mom, Lillian, on a 1/2-scale replica of a 1936 Deere G.P. I made it as a yard ornament mainly out of parts from an old Moline combine and an old Allis combine I had around for parts.
  For example, the frame was built out of the Allis frame. The belt pulleys and brake drums are pulleys off the Moline. The hood is tin work off the Moline, as is the operator's platform.
  The front wheel came off an old stalk chopper, while the back wheels came off a horse-drawn manure spreader. The seat and steering wheel came off an old lawnmower.
  The tractor, which attracts quite a bit of attention, sits in our front yard. (Eric Pekarek, Rt. 1, Box 193A, Valparaiso, Neb. 68056; ph 402 784-3793).
