Such an impressive tractor. On many levels. Congrats, Wing!
Thanks guys; it actually a 1928 the Central Tractor Company was in Bankruptcy that year and less than 1000 were produced this being 134 one built.
Centaur was design to use the horse drawn equipment of this era such as plows, trailers, etc. so the farmer would not have to buy new attachment to use it.

They were also guarantee for life (the company didn't last), this model was produced from 1927 to 1941 (WWII stop production) and was 8-10 horsepower. Over hundred thousand produced, with there unique small size most were sent to France after WWII rebuild the wine country. It was too small for US but perfect for Europe wine growers and small farm, 3 centaur take up as much room as one Fordson on a ship.

Special features 3 wheel steering (use your feet to control each back wheel), no brakes, top speed 1.5 mph, and horse/ox style drawl bar.

It was probably the first true Garden Tractor.

I have yet to start it, I am looking for a carburetor linkage and a chain guard.
Congratulations! That is one spit shined machine! You deserve the honor!
