Sweet Old, Orange Tractor

So I was gonna do laundry then realized I needed to post this awesome Orange tractor instead.

I stole the photo from the BOVB's new Indianapolis Correspondent, Dave, who posted it on Facebook. Here's what he reported about the vehicle:

"I got this in 1996, it is a 1954 Allis Chalmers WD45 wide front end, power take off, pulley, and 'snap-coupler' (a forerunner to the more popular 3-point hitch.) This was a POWERFUL tractor for it's size and made easy work plowing three rows back when two rows at a time was standard. 45 HP four cylinder straight gas engine was standard but you could get it in diesel or liquid propane. It had an adjustable draw bar that would raise or lower depending on the load that it was encountering. I got this from the original owner to use clearing and leveling our property before we built our house here in Zionsville. I used it to cut grass, haul rocks, clear snow, grade our driveway, plow a garden, and pull a float in a parade. "

Sweet. And on top of all that, it's Orange. Dave may be sending more pix along. When he does, I'll post them.

Worth a repeat

Those of you fortunate enough to have been following the BOVB for the past couple of years (the blog'll turn 3 in January 2012) may remember this oldie-but-goodie OV: a 1950something Chevy. Clearly Orange. It's been posted here before (not sure of the date) but since most of the BOVB staff is on vacation for the summer, and since I found this baby sitting outside my YMCA on Sunday, figured I'd snap a pic and re-run it. Enjoy.


PS -- is it just me, or does it seem like it's taking forever for College Football to get here? Jeez Louise.

Check out this sweet semi robotic OV submitted by Shannon, the blog's Seattle correspondent. Most rockin.

La ciudad de vehĂ­culos anaranjados

Went to Miami-Dade for a couple days this week on a biz trip, and saw a TON of OVs. In fact it was one of the most common vehicle color types I saw down there. These pix are just a fraction of what I saw in the City of Orange Vehicles. Awesome.
