Are you sure it is not a home-made tractor? Never
remembered a spoked rear wheels on any garden
tractor. Unless it may be a walk behind type.
If it runs $300. GGP

That sounds like a late forty"s economy the early ones did have chain steering and rear spokes. Could be worth 150-1,500 depending on condition and location pictures help.

Where is this tractor located? If you don't want I would be interested.
I have seen them sell for $100.00 and up. Depends on condition, and how bad you want it or how bad the seller is wanting to get rid of it.

What is the serial number? The tires are actually 6-22 on spoke wheels. The engine would more than likely be a Briggs ZZ. I am currently restoring #331 chain steer. Parts for engine are plentiful and fair priced considering age. There is a chain steer ownership registry that has been put together by the PK yahoo group. Price is what the owner would consider and what you are willing to part with. I paid 500.00 for a running tractor with the land plow and cultivators that were purchased with the tractor in 1947. The tires were shot. 6-22 tractor lug tires are going to set you back near $750.00 if they are needed. Original color was red.

Hello, the Economy chain stear tractors were made from 1946 to the 1949. In 1949 they came out with a steering gear box. These tractors had 22 inch , 24 inch ,and 16 inch rear wheels welded to 1/2 by2 steel spokes. Some had hand brakes and some had no brakes.The 2 motors put on these tractors were ZZP Briggs and AEH Wisconsin.Ihave 2 1948 , 1has 24 inch rear tires and aZZP Briggs and the other has 16 inch wheels and an AEH Wisconsin .
