Description:
At first glance, this looks like an ordinary farm tractor, an antique one, now 70 years old. But take another look and you will see that it has TWO steering wheels. And two seats. One of the steering wheels is fake. Here is what that sign on its front wheels says: 1946 Farmall B / Bob Denny / Newport, NC / The second seat and steering / wheel on the left were added / so grandchildren could ride / in parades and “steer.”
