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...

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.

I hope he has a trailer that will do it justice. He can take it to shows and show it off!!!
