Harold Kiecker, of Lake Lillian, loads weight onto the front of his 1945 CO-OP D3 prior to the start of the West Central Antique Power Collectors Club tractor pull Sunday near Blomkest.

โ€œOnly 200 CO-OPs were made and I have five of them,โ€ he said. โ€œThe government gave the plant in Shelbyville, Indiana, a grant in 1945 to make them for thrashing wheat in the Dakotas. The government was worried about food shortages.โ€

It is powered by a 250 Chrysler flathead.
