Dale you wouldn't happen to be Dale Jensen of Springfield Ill. that wrote an article about the 656 pulling a homecomming float with an outhouse on it are you. That was in a very early edition of Red Power. Eason
That was a long time ago and yes I'm the author. Pulling that float was the highlight of my senior year, and high school in general, for that matter. This year is my Adel (Iowa) Class of '72 40th anniversary. We're going to have a class float in the annual Sweetcorn Festival parade held in Adel every August. My brother still has the 656. I seriously considered driving it to town (11 miles) and pulling the float. However, a classmate who lives just 1 mile west of town owns a restored Oliver 77. He drives it in the parade every year and would like to pull the float this year. I'll step aside.
My plan now is to surprise everyone with a 1/16th scale model of our senior-year float, complete with outhouse, at our class banquet. It will be hitched to my Prestige 656. I'd still like to swap the Prestige fast hitch for a 3 point from the Hydro, but other than that the Prestige version looks like our tractor.
