Here’s your chance to share a photo of your favorite tractor.

1954 Brockway 49 G

Oct 27, 2009

This tractor was featured for the month of February in the 2009 Classic Farm Tractor Calendar.

 

It was brought in Ohio by her father, Oral Butzer (deceased). Now, being beautifully restored, Jackie Rome proudly drives it in parades. Jackie’s husband, Hadley, did the restoration, and keeps the engine fine-tuned. It has a 4-cylinder, 162 cu. in. Continental engine paired with a 4-speed transmission, built for Brockway by New Process Gear. It has a Brockway chain-driven rear end. This one’s gas; the Brockway 49 D had a Continental GD 157 diesel engine. In 1959, Brockway ceased production, but there’s a Leader Tractor Club that attracts Leader and Brockway buffs.

 



















Owners:

Jackie and Hadley Rome

Trenton, Florida

 

Truly a family tractor, Jackie’s father had used it for just about everything on his small farm in Ohio, and it was used for bush hogging after it arrived in Florida. But now it’s living a life of luxury–parades, shows and ride around town–with plenty of TLC.
