Shelby Tractor & Truck Co.

Three different tractor models were offered from 1919 to
1921 by Shelby Tractor & Truck Company. The Shelby
people started things off in 1919 with a 9-18 model using a
little Waukesha 3 3/4 x 5 1/4 inch four-cylinder motor. In 1920,
a 15-30 model was added. It was a 5,000 pound rig with an
Erd four-cylinder 4 3/4 x 6 inch engine. The 1921 line used
the same 15-30, but the 9-18 model was re-rated to 10
drawbar and 20 brake horsepower.
