MODEL BEST

By Staff

This photo is of a model Best built and owned by Norman and
Robert Noll, 20451 Barton Road, New Berlin, Wisconsin 53151. Robert
Noll is driving in the picture. This tractor has a five horse
boiler and a four horse engine and was built from scratch with only
a picture of a Best for blueprints. The tractor was run at the
Branch #2 of the Early Day Gas Tractor Association show at Sussex,
Wisconsin. Mounted on the other side (not visible in the picture)
is a huge locomotive air horn converted to steam. It really pleases
the crowds by shaking the ground! Norman would love to hear from
other model Best owners.
