About the Tractor
April 28, 2017
The tractor out front is a 1962 Ford 4000 Series. It spent its first 15 years working farms in Northern Utah, before moving on to haul boats in and out of Bear Lake for another 17 years. During that those 32 years of hard work it was repaired many times. Parts being hard to come by, Ford 801 parts where occasionally scavenged to bring it back to life. Eventually however, it feel into disrepair and was put out to pasture, all but forgotten for a dozen years.
Then, Jason Stucki and his brother rescued the family tractor from rust and rot. In 2009 the restored beast was driven down 1300 South and parked out front of Lucky 13 to celebrate our grand opening. It quickly became a favorite of customers and employees and we decided it should have a new leisurely life of semi-retirement as our unofficial greeter.
