After seeing this tractor displayed in the Porsche museum in Stuttgart, Germany I sought out the very best version of it and purchased it. It starts immiedately and operates flawlessly in every way. It has been restored by Porsche Diesel USA and is collector quality. These rarely come on the market and seldom if ever are they museum quality. It has the correct Porsche gauges and lights. New glow plugs, fluids, electrical rewired, full restoration as seen by the photos. It was in a tractor museum on the east coast for a long time prior to my ownership. I have all of the english manuals and spare parts manuals and some manuals in German. Dimensions for shipping purposes are: 122"x 66"x 66"
