Apr 26, 2011
Cover tractor of the month, Fastline Texas edition.
Owned by Richard and Harvey Wilde, San Antonio Texas.
The tractor was originally purchased by Alois A Kahlig of Ballinger, Texas for $558 on December 19, 1927. He and his sons W.J. Clements and Harold used the tractor on their farm in Olfen, Texas until 1930 when it was replaced by a Farmall Regular. It remained in a shed on the farm until Mr. Kahligs’ death in 1965 when his son-in-law, Elo G. Wilde, moved the tractor to his farm near Wall, Texas. His sons, Richard and Harvey Wilde, inherited the tractor.
After five generations, the tractor is currently housed on Harvey’s farm near San Angelo, Texas.
