Anyone got pictures of Doodle Bugs???

Postby b52c130 » Thu Jun 23, 2011 10:25 am

Do any of you out there got any good pictures of old 'Doodle Bugs' ?
Of course if you do, you should start a new topic under the 'Tractor Pride Photo Forum' section.

Next time I'm able to go to my parents there are pictures from the 80's of us using my Grandpa's model A "doodle bug". I'll see if I can find them and scan them and add them to this thread.

Dale:

My father-in-law's Putt-Putt is one type of Doodle-Bug. It was built from parts of different cars and trucks. The rear end is off a 1 ton Ford ?, the tranny from a Studebaker, wheels from different types of cars .. Chrysler and Ford if I remember correctly.

Here are a couple pics :D

Just after it was made, my mother-in-law did the modeling :wink:

The last one shows Pepere (my wife's grandfather - Mom's Dad) on the Putt-Putt and Dad manning the scoop digging the basement for their new house.

Dad made one back in the 70's. I don't have any photos of it. he used the transmission and rear end from a 49 Ford. he narrowed the rearend down to 4ft. The engine was a 2 cylinder Wisconsin from an old IH baler. He add two master cylinders from I think chevy trucks to make turning brakes. he made the frame from channel irons. I can't remember what he used for front wheels. I know they were like 4.00x12.

The transmission was belt driven off the engine. it had three belts with an idler pulley for the clutch.
