I built this tractor/mower in 1976 and have mowed 5 acres every year since. The parts are from a John Deere M30 combine, a CO-OP combine, a 1965 Plymouth Valiant, a Volkswagen, a John Deere pull mower, a Ford Model T and a Woods 59-inch mower (only new parts). It has front drive, rear steering, three speeds forward and one reverse. I sent a photo of my mower to Woods Mfg. 10 years before they came out with a front-mount mower. Just thought you might be interested.
