Blast from the Past

Someone driving down the road might have taken a second glance at this image.  Mirage Flats area farmer Matt Thorson has restored this 1967 Gleanor CII.  The Gleanor combine has a Chevy 262 6 cylinder gas engine with 65-70 horsepower, with a 4 row corn head.  Matt has had the combine for about 12 years, but just recently was able to find a corn head for it.  The combine came from Dodge City and he found the corn head and a wheat head south of Bayard.  The semi to unload the corn into had to be parked in the ditch along the road so the auger could reach over it to unload corn.  They also noted how much corn has improved over time.  The small size augers on the combine were at full capacity with 212 bushel corn.  The combine is being driven by Boyd Holtmeir.
