The Worhington "G" was the Model that came out commencing in 1950, and going thru 1960 or '61("G" was from '50-'53-ish, "G2" was from '54 thru '56-ish, etc.). Built at the Worthington plant(which was bought out by Jacobsen in '46, I believe)in Stroudsburg, PA. They moved the manufaturing to Wisconsin(Jacobsen Proper)in '61, and closed Stroudsburg, and I believe quit calling the tractors Worthington once they moved....
The "G" used 8N Engine, and 8N Sheet Metal(fuel tank, radiator, were 8N). Ford half-ton Truck front axle, 1 ton truck rear end, and a Ford truck transmission. Used a Ross/Ford Jeep steering box, and many other things I'm sure I'm leaving out. I beleive the only Proprietary(Worthington Buit/Manufactured components were the frame--4"channel--, wheel weights, front radiator support, etc.). The "G2" used Ford Jubilee Sheet metal, Red Tiger Engine, etc.
If you go on ebay, and do a search for "Worthington Tractor", you will see a red "G" on there with a tow behind turf vac hooked up to it. Can be yours for the bargain price of $4K!! I told the guy his price was a little steep almost 2 years ago(eventhough it seems to be in good shape)...he didnt seem happy with my comments, but there it still sits, 2 years later. They are great little rigs, with just the right amount of thoughfully mixed together components, so that they aren't too dufficult to find parts for even 60 years later. Low center of Gravity, and truck transmission=40 MPH on one of these, on a bad day!!
