Imagine my surprise when I spotted this Ford tractor parked permanently on display outside the Lucky13 Bar and Grill in downtown Salt Lake City.

At first I thought it was just an 801 painted red, but once I got the car stopped and walked back for a better look, I started to notice things like the front axle, HD radius rods and of course the model number.

I was told the owner of the establishment inherited the tractor from his grandfather. It was brought directly from the estate settlement to the corner bar and parked there. The only thing that has been done to it since then is the addition of the flame-thrower exhaust.

I was told it still runs and I guess they fire it up for the visual effect at night if the "mood" is right!

The most interesting thing I found was the rear wheel center sections. They are wheel weights. Not just weights bolted on, but the center disks themselves act as wheel weights.

I've never seen these before. I have a light industrial owners manual and cast iron rear wheels are mentioned as an option. I don't know if that's what these are or if these are some sort of aftermarket addition. The rims appear to be standard 6 loop rims. In looking at the photos I now seem to notice some numbers on the outer edges of the center disks/wheel weights. I may go back and see if I can read what those numbers say.

The link below shows all the pics I took. Most of them are pretty boring....just date codes and other details that I noticed were different from a standard ag model that I'm more familiar with.
