We like to call this tractor a Hood River icon. For many decades it was a main feature in the Hood River 4th of July Parades. In the mid-80s it fell in to disrepair and people no longer got to see it. When the museum opened it fit right in with our antiques. It took us a while to find a team to restore it but once they started the tractor was back up and running in under 6 months! Originally we had thought this was a 1911 but as we restored the tractor all the serial and part numbers we found were from 1910 – our guess is that it was built in 1910 and by the time it reached the Hood River Valley, it was 1911 but still a “brand new” tractor. That’s more than 100 years of confusion cleared up!
