    Model L Width?

    In a few weeks I'm picking up an early Model L. What's the width of rear tires. My trailer is 49" x 97"--hoping I don't have to remove one of the rear tires to make it fit.

    The original factory dimensions for the L were 47" wide x 93" long. But you'd have to ask whoever owns it how wide the tires they have on it are. There really isn't any way for anyone else to know that, is there?

    If the L has "original size" tires, you'll be OK. I have a 1942 LA and love it. Has this one been restored or is it a project?

    It's a future project, plan to restore and give to my son, he has a small garden patch in rual Maryland. It has the cultivator attachment and a single bottom plow--I'll see it for the first time next month.

    Is that an unstyled L? Either way it is very nice.

    Wow! that's a very collectible tractor. Looks like a Unstyled 1937 or 38 model L and appears to have all the parts still on the tractor. Do you know the serial number? The serial number for the unstyled L began at 621079 in 1937. The ending number is 622580 in 1938. There were 1502 built.

    Congrats, it is a rare tractor. In fully restored condition with original parts, between $6000 to $8000.

    And it looks like those are the original tires so your trailer should work. Thanks for that picture, it made my day.
