I really don’t know too much about this one other than it has a Chrysler industrial 6 cylinder engine in it. I’ve seen those engines in a lot of agricultural applications – irrigation pumps, harvesters, and old hobart welders to name a few. Those engines were pretty much bulletproof, and i’m sure there are thousands of them still at work today. Parts are still readily available for these engines, and there is a ton of great information about them on the internet
By the looks of the sheet metal on the welder, it’s probably a 40’s vintage? If anyone knows any more about it, i’d love to hear about it. In any event, i love the art deco styling with the sloped back over the generator. The grill looks an awful lot like a cross between an old Farmall – International Harvester model H and an Oliver 99 tractor. I’m a big fan of the styling.
This would be the perfect welder for an old off road Dodge Power Wagon Rig Truck.
Thanks to David S. for the pictures!
