1938 Minneapolis-Moline UDLX



Years ahead of its time, the UDLX (ultra deluxe) featured the first factory built tractor cab with radio, cigar lighter, heater, hub caps, and paneling. Other features included 40 mph road gear, headlights, and even a license plate. Only about 125 were built. They sold for $1,800, double what other tractors sold for at the time. Some were used by custom combine operators in wheat country, others saw service delivering mail in the winter on snow-clogged northern rural roads.
