This one should be delivered sometime this weekend. 

It needs its share of work but worth it.

Neat tractor.  

 

Your thread title had me expecting some sort of reference to Blondie.

I was told it's an Atomic Babe, but it may be a Haney, or a Garver. I believe they were made in Doylestown Pa. Also this may be a 1946, the year is unknown at the moment.. When it gets here I will find out for sure.

1946 may not be to far off.  Those rear tires are Firestones with typical mid 40's tread.  The Babe may have original rear tires.  They are currently being reproduced in some sizes.  Not sure about the fronts.  Cant wait to see some more pic's, get her home soon....

I'm kinda stoked. I won't be looking to restore but running good and functional. Original tires would be a plus in my book. I hope later today or tomorrow for arrival. Hoping to Haul a hay wagon with it for Halloween

So what happened to the rear tires?  Is this the same tractor as in post #1?

It is the same tractor. The other tires wouldn't hold air so swapped out for these to make it easier loading/ unloading

Somewhere along the lines of ordering parts for Colossus I had an incredible streak of efficiency and ended up with two sets of tubes. Double check your size when you get a minute and I'll do the same. If you can use these, you're welcome to them.

Definitely 16s. I appreciate the offer Eric. I actually did the same thing when I built Hiram and have 2 tubes left over.

I am loving that tractor.  Glad you got it home.  When you get some time snap some pics.  Please.  The tires too, front & rear.
