OWNERS NOTE: I am selling my collection of Traction Steam Engines, Stationary Engines and Duplicate Gas Tractors because of a lack of inside storage. I plan on devoting my time and storage space to enlarging my collection of Gas Tractors and Motor Trucks. I am now offering cash for Tractors or Motor Trucks manufacturing prior to 1930 if they fit in my collection.
