Drilling into Local History with a Water Well Drill

Wyoming collector rebuilds and restores water well drill dating back to the 1870s.

1930 Cletrac Model W
Decades ago, this 1930 Cletrac Model W fell into highly creative hands. Modified with a Ford flathead V-8 engine, the crawler's gas tank was salvaged from an International tractor. "Somebody cut it open and flattened it to make it styled," Larry says, "and then welded it back together. Even the engine is rare. It's a 1932 or '33 Ford engine with a water pump in each head. It is quite the little workhorse."
