Lovely pic, never saw a dozer with a wooden cabin. Must be an interesting story behind that tractor.

Thanks for your comment Lesmore49.
You're right about the cab as it most likely was not a factory option although this one is nicely constructed and would probably meet with Peoria's approval. I've seen other vintage Caterpillars and, to your observation, they mostly leave the operator exposed to the elements; some might, have an angle iron frame and a piece of corrugated steel rolled to make a roof but nothing for wind. I did notice that this one, doesn't seem to have a "heater" for cold weather operation but it does appear to have an early vintage air conditioning with flip open windscreen and fold back doors. Thanks again. Al

Nice airy cab, the modern ones are kind of tight around the operator, one of whom (not on my site) on a very hot day managed to fall asleep at the controls and the machine gaily ploughed on through the site boundary and two cars in the adjoining cap park before control was regained.
