Collector gets more than he bargains for in tractor salvage operation
This McCormick-Deering 10-20 crawler was built in the late 1920s or early 1930s and is unique because the steering clutches were on raised pedestals (sometimes called camel humps), making it possible to stand while driving.
Then ten-year-old Tyler Ballard was part of the retrieval crew that brought the McCormick-Deering crawler home on a tilt-bed machinery trailer pulled by a World War II 1942 Dodge WC 1/2-ton truck.
Rectangular tin cans such as this were commonly used for many years to hold automotive liquids. The can housing the unwanted tractor accessory was twice the size of this 1-gallon can.
