Antique Farm Equipment Museum

Located in Tulare, CA pretty much the center of California's Central Valley agricultural area. Apologies for the poor quality of some of the photos. Lighting was not the greatest and wasn't sure if I could bring a tripod in.

For you ac designer we (at least I) need some crop duster models. Some vintage tractors and steam traction models would be welcomed also.

Never saw one like the Case in the fourth pic before. I suppose you'd have to have wide rows ...

At that time most crop cultivation was still by hand (them big farm families with 10 kids). Tractors were still primarily basic field prep, towing and power sources.

The little fellow in pic two was primarily for power, running threshers, bailers, etc. It's fun seeing the old equipment being used these days. I see you are from Arizona. My best client, who is no longer with us, ran a crew in Arizona, Utah and Colorado, going from farm to farm doing custom threshing and bailing. Certainly not the way things are done these days.

I grew up on a farm in south central Oklahoma. Spend my summers in the mid 60's on a broomcorn cutting crew or hauling hay. First job outside the family farm was at 10 driving tractor in the peanut harvest for 25 cents an hour.

Many years ago there were two old tactor models available. A 1922 Ford Fordson and a Hoyt Clagwell. The name on the parts sheets is Magnus Eriksson. The web address on the sheets is
Code:
www.papermodels.cjb.net
The website does not seem to be around anymore.

I vaguely rememberd seeing that. So I went to the Waback Machine and managed to harvest the attached ones. Unfortunately, there didn't seem to be a way to provide a direct link. I think the Wayback Machine snapshot I ransacked was dated 10 Oct 2004.

Thanks Leif, I had the Fordson thanks to help from Charlie C; but didn't have the others.

The Hoyt-Clagwell was the fictional tractor on "Green Acres" made primarily with Fordson F parts. Sort of like the Porter from My Mother The Car. There was a Porter car build several years after the supposed vehicle on the show. George Barris (who also did the vehicles on Green Acres) had a Porter grill shell in his junkpile. That and a bunch of Ford T and some aftermarket repro parts equal a tv car.

Great thread whulsey! The Case Tractors are the epitome of cast iron and are the soul of "steampunk" type designing.

Leif, my brother in law has a 13 acre farm and was just asking me about farm equipment, this is a treasure trove, Thanks!!

The Magnus Ericksson site that was easiest to pull up the models on Wayback was http://hem.fyristorg.com/bil/papper/meny.html . Wayback Machine is having issues with it today, but on a few of the models in the past I was able to get build instructions. Not so much luck today. Click on 'Models' at the top
