I just finished modifying and restoring our 1950 Model A tractor that has been in the family since we bought it new. The high point of this restoration is that this tractor is now turbocharged. It runs great and now has the whine of the turbo with every stroke of the 2-cylinder. Sounds great! You have to look closely to see the turbo, which is in front of the valve cover, where the small tool box was originally located. All exhaust piping is constructed of stainless steel and the exhaust manifold and turbo are ceramic-coated.
