    1938 Minneapolis Moline UDLX Comfortractor - video and photos

    The 1938 Minneapolis Moline UDLX Comfortractor, an attempt to create a dual purpose tractor-car vehicle. The Comfortractor included a fully-enclosed cab (a first for a farm tractor), and creature comforts like a heater, radio, second seat, and full gauges. It had an advertised top speed of over 40 mph (but no suspension).









    Unfortunately, the Comfortractor's $2,000 cost (about twice as much as a regular tractor) limited its appeal, and only around 150 were made. Today, because of its unique look and rarity, a fully restored Comfortractor can fetch almost $200,000 at auction.

    I saw one of these at a local tractor show with my dad years ago. Very cool.
