|A 1964 Einspahr Nicknamed Fred|
My grandfather, Fred Einspahr, was a wheat farmer. During the long winter months to bide his time we was a designer, metal fabricator, welder, etc. He built a lot of the equipment he used on his farm. He also built a lot of other equipment for neighbors. Some say here built prototypes that should have been patended. He tried that once and it didn't go well (story is one of my web pages at www. tukptc.com).
About the time he retired from farming he decided to build himself a garden tractor. After retiring he built a couple more. The prototype was traded for a two car garage. One was giving to his church to keep up the grounds. The other was sold after he passed.
I purchased the prototype and have started restoring it. If you would like to follow my efforts check out my web page and link you to the 1964 Einspahr. From there you can link to my other two tractors I own.
My grandfather was honored as '1964 National Soil Farmer of the Year. ' Mostly because of his soil conservation farming pratices and tree planting activities on the Rosebud Sioux Reservation (Todd County) South Dakota.
Although my site is always a work in progress I have created a page about my grandfather at my web site.
