“Price reduced from $975 to $775 to have this gone before I have to plow snow around it !…This is a vintage Empire tractor chassis built by the Empire Tractor Co. in New York after WWII. The Empire Tractor Co. decided to produce small farm tractors using readily available Willys Jeep engine, transmission and drivetrain parts from war surplus.

The tractor chassis is Serial Number 5826. It was built in Nov. 1947. This sale includes only what is shown in the pictures. You would need a Willys 134 cu. in. 4cyl. engine and transmission. The driveshaft is still there, as well as the rear axle. The PTO shaft and rear output is also included. The cowl and dash still has all the rare I.D. tags attached and legible.

This would be a good restoration project for someone who may already have a Willys drivetrain in an older, rusted out Jeep. This project would be a lot of work, but well worth it. I cannot physically do the type of work needed anymore, so I am offering it for sale.

We do have a forklift and loader tractor available to help with loading for the buyer.”
