A few years ago I got interested in antique tractors and
engines, as my dad had a 3 HP Economy to pull a sausage mill and a
cutoff saw used to saw firewood.
I bought a 1 HP Economy, which I put on trucks, and a corn
Then I found a Fordson tractor sitting under a lot of junk at an
antique place. I brought it home and restored it.
It was awfully heavy to haul, so I looked around and found a
Gibson D garden tractor. I took it home and restored it. I started
carting it to shows and it was fairly rare.
Then I got interested in Gibsons and started collecting them.
Now I have eight different models, some of which are restored. I
have several Ds and As to restore at a later date. My last one to
restore is a Gibson model I, 6 cylinder, that I found in Canton,
Missouri. The engine was stuck, the transmission was stuck, and I
worked on it about four months. It’s finally completed, thanks
to my wife Cora’s help and indulgence.
The above photo shows what it looks like now.
