This is a picture of Wilson Gas Cultivator built in 1916. Thedealer near Roanoke, Illinois purchased two from the Wilson TractorCompany, Peoria, Illinois, for $900.00 each. We think this is theonly one left of this make. This tractor is powered by a LeRoi4-cylinder engine, has individual brakes for steering and istricycle type with two-row cultivator, two-speed forward andreverse. It also has belt pulley. If anyone has information of anyother one of this model, I would appreciate hearing from them.
