Old Iron Opens the Door to New Friends

People are at the heart of the old iron hobby, as Josephine Roberts explains.

This 1964 County Super 6 was quite a piece of kit in its day. County was a British firm that began by converting twin-axle Ford trucks to run on three axles. Then, from 1948 on, they began to convert Fordson Major tractors to run on tracks. Later they converted tractors into 4-wheel drive machines with four equal size wheels. This example was based on a Fordson Major and also features County 6-cylinder engine conversion. It belongs to Chris Tranter, and it was a one-off in the lineup at the Llandudno festival.
