    Found this old tractor half buried in a shed im taking down. Engine is toast but frame is still there. Interested to know what era its from and if its worth more than scrap value.

    Welcome to the forum gwizzer. That's quite the find. I was thinking it might be a Shaw, but the frame is not quite right. I would think there are some folks out there that would love to tackle a project like that. Might even look great just parked in a garden display!

    Welcome to the forum,Gwizzer!
    It looks like a Speedex,from around the late 1940's- 1950s .
