1959 Porsche Diesel Tractor

Today I bought a 1959 Porsche Diesel tractor for my dad. On the 22th of February my dad has itīs 65th birthday. The tractor has itīs 50th birthday on exactly the same day.

Itīs a Porsche Diesel Standard with a 2cyl 1.7L diesel engine with 28 HP. It completely restored and in a very good condition. It has a rear locker with a foot pedal, an auxilliary drive, a rear hydraulics and some more features.

Here are some pics.

Wow! 20 mph...



Starting in the 5th gear?



Yes it works!



Whereīs the diff locker pedal?!



Engine compartment...

My dads grandpa had such a tractor when my dad was a kid. Thatīs why he wants such a thing.

I think heīll drive with it for fun on a few days a year. Thatīs all.

That's great. You can also get him a license plate frame for his car that says "my other ride is a Porsche" Either way nice job on the restoration.
