VINTAGE PICS

Recommended Posts

If we could only see it in color!  I don't know that I've ever seen that model of WH trailer?

Very cool!  Thanks for sharing.

 

By the way, my parents say they had the same car seat for me back in the day.

Dad is an antique car enthusiast.  That is a 1932 Chevrolet Cabriolet in the garage.  The old coupe is a 1930 Model A Ford.

Here is the 856.   The teenager is my uncle, my mother's brother, 12 years older than me.

 

I apologize for the sporadic posting here.  I'm doing this at work in between customers and phone calls.:wacko:

 

I'll let you guess who the little kid is.  :rolleyes:

Can't date this exactly.  The tractor looks about new.  Dad did keep 'em clean though and still does.  I do remember this day though, I certainly remember getting to drive it!  Probably the first :wh: I got to drive.

Looks like your dad upgraded to a newer deck some time between these two photos.

 

Nice photos.  Based on all the posing, your dad really appreciated his Horses.

Yes, that's possible.   Or the color photo may be a different tractor, maybe a 1965, if his leg was just not in the way!   Some keen eyed enthusiasts here will tell us.    Dad traded tractors every few years through the sixties and seventies up until he retired, and he always put light kits on them.  He became friend's with the local WH dealer and he bought vehicles from Dad every few years also.

 

He took pride in all his vehicles including the WHs.  I remember getting yelled at;  "don't scratch it, or get my feet off the seat, quit fooling with those knobs, leave that alone," etc. :rolleyes:  The dealer always like getting his trade-ins.  They would sell quickly he said.

Ok you asked for it.  I don't remember doing all this very well.  I did end up having to replace the carb I remember.  It ran sweet after.  I remember cleaning lots of gunk and sludge off of it.

Great Photo!  Now days some body would lose their kid for that.  :ychain:

 

Notice the brake pedal.  Early owners like to modify their rides too.

Oh, and that's me in the dump cart.

First, let me say this is a very cool :text-goodpost:, thanks for sharing all of those photos.

The dump cart is a LTD-24 and was made from 1958 to 1961. I have one and it is great with the Suburban but not so much with the later :wh:.  The tongue on these trailers was made to fit into the smaller sleeve hitch on the RJs and Suburbans and had pivot points built into it, a real piece of work! Take a look at the manual.

Yeah it has a funky swivel thing on the tongue that only works on a sleeve hitch.  I remember busting it once when a buddy and me were using it to haul firewood out of the hollers on his grandpas place.  Had to get it welded.  I found some WH paint and touched up the weld.  It was a couple of years before Dad noticed it.  :huh:
