The first “Pre-Production” unit. SN I-00.
This tractor was manufactured in Longmont Colorado around 1948. Although the Gibson tractor company made some 500,000 garden size tractors, this was Gibson’s first and last attempt at a full sized tractor. One of the things Mr Gibson was famous for was his ability to find parts, when none were available, due to World War II.
This tractor’s 12 year restoration project, employed nearly every professional technique available. It has been a real show stopper, and marvelous parade piece…Its always garaged, and last year I even pulled it in an antique tractor pull—flawless pull! It beat everything except those hot-rod Olivers!
