I will be posting photos of a tractor my sisters and I ran across this month while driving from NC to New Orleans. We will see how many photos it takes for someone to identify AND tell the function of this tractor! Good luck!!! :big smile:

OK, it is an M...Not sure about the MV:

and, according to the guys that owned it, you're close on the purpose, but not quite there!

Nice paint job!

It is a 1953 Super M with the distillate option. It has been converted to a high clearance machine, much higher than a typical MV that would have been used as a conventional cane tractor. It was probably intended as a spray rig or some similar operation.

I was teasing...but I guess since you already know WHAT it is, I might as well show it all (so to speak!!!):

OK, anymore guesses as to its purpose before I show the distance shots? Of course, I don't think it will help anyway...I never would have guessed!!

Purpose - farming, or maybe not. Need a better idea of where that propane line goes. Serial number suggests 1939. Vern
