Douglas Tractor
« on: 05 Nov 2008 at 07:30 »
Hi,
    I recently came across a little tractor that I have enclosed photos of. It has a Douglas engine that belt drives onto a clutch attached to a reduction gearbox then into a Chev gearbox conected to a Model T Ford diff.
   What I would like to know is it factory built somewhere or is it homemade? Two people have told me that they have seen more of them and I would like to find out if this is possible.

                             Cheers  David

David,

While Douglas did supply engines for some small tractors (and possibly made a model or two) between the wars, this is homemade example, using a Douglas WW2 generator set engine. This engine became the basis of the postwar motorcycle range.
