I have a 1950's Hobart bros airplane tug. This is the big one that actually pulled airplanes. Runs and shifts good just needs a steering column has a Ford flathead inline six a 3 speed manual trans and a tractor trailer humungous rear end it weighs at my best guess 5000-7000 pounds so bring a heavy duty trailer and truck

I do not know what is wrong with the steering column i thought it was the roller bearing in the bottom becouse it got ground up but i replaced it and nothing changed.
It does the following
-Turns left but wont turn right 
-When turning right the steering shaft acts like it is unscrewing
-Can be turned right by 2 people physically turning front wheels by hand
-Can hold it straight to drive onto trailer

This is registered as farm equipment so it does not have a title but i will give bill of sale to whoever buys it

Very interested in old beetles, another tractor that runs, boats, ATV, or camper

Very in need of a fullsize truck or SUV (I dont care about age, miles under 300,000, engine size, or manual or automatic transmission but must run drive and pass inspection, or at least get there cheaply)

Not in a good place financially so I can not add cash for a deal.

I will NOT hold for anyone without money down

Last picture is all the information I know about it
