  • I have two 1937 Co-oP tractors, a model no.3 and model no. 2, both semi restored. The #3 was purchased new by my dad on Sept. 14, 1937, for 1375.00. He spent many hours working this tractor, grading roads, plowing, threshing, and used as power for McCullough Bros. feed mill in Allenford Ontario, CANADA. The #2 was purchased 2005 at Stewart Weavers estate sale. His father, Herman was the sales agent for Co-oP tractors in the Owen Sound area in 1937. He sold a total of nine tractors in this area. Between my cousin and I we have 13 Co-oP tactors , of different years and models.

  • In regard to Tim Bruce statement of Lehr Big Boy - everything is as you say. I believe our neighbors still have a Lehr Big Boy. If you notice the picture above I believe it reads Coop on the side and down the front it looks like Lehr ... It was built like you say from truck parts due to the scarity of parts and materials during the World War. It s claim to fame was that it could travel 35 miles an hour in road gear.

It has a single wheel in the front with a square radiator and it has the big fenders, drawbar hitch, movable flywheel with rubber tires. The motor is very detailed. I thought it was neat and bought it. Can anyone give me more information about the tractor of which this toy is a model?
