    Otherwise know as a “Hoover wagon.”
    My grandparents had one during the Depression… Many folks who bought cars in the 1920s couldn’t afford to operate them after the Crash – and such practical conversions were popular.

    As a boy in the 1950s, I used my neighbor’s Model-T tractor. Even then, it was considered an antique oddity and everyone assumed it was self-made.
    I do remember SHAW logo on the steering wheel and wondering what a “SHAW” was. Now 50 years later. the mystery of the tractor is revealed. I looooove the Internet!
