Charlie English, Jr. of 12910 St. Joseph Avenue, Evansville, IN 47712 sent this photo of a little dozer he built and owns. The model consists of 2 Model A Ford transmissions and a cut down Model A rear end. A rather common 8 HP Briggs & Stratton is the po

The track chains were found at a local coal mine and plates were
welded on. The sprockets and idlers were also homemade. 3′ x
5′ angle iron was used for the frame and a 1950 G John Deere
hood, grill and seat were used to highlight the dozer.

The replica is 8′ long, 4′ wide and 44′ tall. It
weighs 1600 lbs. without a driver.

‘I would really like to see shows set aside an exclusive for
replicas and small garden equipment,’ writes English. Besides
the dozer, he also has a 1918 30-60 Aultman Taylor, 1938 Massey
Harris Super 101 and a 1950 Love tractor.
