This 1904 tractor is gold for people who enjoy looking for the oldest working vehicles. After the owners stopped using it, the tractor was stored in an old chicken coop for years.

The appearance of the tractor is peculiar and the fact that it is still functional along with the engine is mind-blowing. When it comes to the engine, it has large bore compared to its size and its output is probably around 5 HP. It features a lightweight piston as well.

What’s most interesting about the engine of this tractor is that it is one of the earliest existing 4-stroke engines that uses a┬ádesmodromic valve gear.. Check it out!
