  • What a wonderful experience. I only wish I had a few pictures to send to you. My youngest brother farmed and I taught school, but that was a few years ago. We have hauled just as you guys did on a Ford F-100 the following; old outhouses, tractor tires(huge ones for a big tractors), sand, freezers, old ice boxes(yes, ice boxes), parts of a manure speader, engines out of antique tractors, etc. I could go on but I am sure you get the message. We, like you two guys got many comments from by-standers--it was an experience and experiences both of us will never forget! We are both retired now; my brother raises buffalo for a hobby and I study geology; he was a farmer and I an combination teacher/principal. Your story brought this all back to me--I'll share it with him because we both are enthusiasts on old Farmalls and Ford Pick-up trucks.

  • I have a '57 lowboy and a '50 cub. I always wondered if it would fit in my old '69 ford truck. Now I know. Thanks for the story and the picture.

  • We've all been there before in one way or another, haven't we. I did laugh when I read this, but nicely, though..

  • Hilarious!! I've been known to do things like that myself. You just never have exactly the right unit at the right time!!

  • ROFL!! That must have been a sight. Had a similar experience with a MH Pony and a Ford 1/2 ton pickup. Chesapeake is a great place but growing fast. Have friends in the West Road area. Live in Suffolk near Whaleyville now.

  • Well u gotta admit ford has always been tough trucks and will always be just that. I would have done the same thing myself.

  • Your story brought back memories from about the same year, give or take one or two. My dad had purchased a Massey Harris Pony with attachments similar to your farmall. We were in much the same position you were in as far as transportation. The man we purchased the tractor from delvered it in a 1/2 ton dodge. Loaded and setting on the frame. THANKS FOR THE STORY.

  • Great Story!!! I just rented a trailer and pulled my wife's grandfather's A from Alabama to Virginia.

  • Hey, if it wasn't for a 4 CYL. CHEVY LUV, that old 6 CYL. Ford would be there for a while! Let the Chevrolet trucks live on! (But I do give credit to that FixOrRepairDaily for hauling that Farmall.) We have a '78 Chevy 1/2 ton with a trailer that we used to get an A with plow a few days ago. It took us 1 1/2 hours to get it.

  • Loved your story, and it brought to mind one my father told me. It seems that right after WWII that you couldn't buy new tractors because of war production, so dad found a 1936 Allis WC out in Seward Nebraska. At the time he lived in Atlantic Iowa and this was about 150 miles from the tractor. Well back then they didn't have trailors like we all do now, and wouldn't have had anything to pull them with anyway, so he did some measuring, and went out there, turned the rear tires around (on the WC they were bolted solid, not like the WD where they would spin in or out), backed the rear end of the tractor into the bed of the pickup, chaioned it there and drove home to Iowas with the front tractor tires folling along behind. Man what a trip that must have been.
