4WD Truck-torDarrel Foster's4-WD "truck-tor" looks like any other pickup from the front. Butwalk to the rear and you'll see that the back half is a tractor.
"It gets lots of attention wherever I go," says Foster, of Springfield, Ohio. He built the "truck-tor" from a 1974 IH 3/4 ton 4-WD pickup and a Minneapolis Moline 302 tractor. It's equipped with a 3-pt. hitch, hydraulics and reversible pto. Foster controls all tractor functions from inside the cab by means of rods connected to the tractor rear end's brakes, pto, high-low transmision, gear shift lever and hydraulic levers. There are four transmissions ù two in the pickup and two in the tractor. The combination provides 36 forward gears and 16 in reverse.
