Straight From the Horse’s Mouth-The Wheel Horse Story

Final Edition

The final edition, which is dedicated to Cecil Pond’s children, Constance, Linda, and Gary, is far superior to the previous editions in every way. The book has 251 pages which is more than double the size of the original. Three entirely new chapters have been added and all of the chapters have been revised with a huge amount of new information, as well as scores of additional pictures and documents.

My goal is to present a superior quality book that will be a true tribute to Cecil and Elmer Pond. The  previous editions can not be compared to the Final edition! Published and printed in the USA, it comes complete with a heavy, case bound hardcover, adorned in black book cloth imprinted with silver foil stamping and then protected by a laminated, heavy stock, full color dust jacket that is absolutely beautiful. I also chose the highest quality binding available that actually includes a cloth headband to add even more strength to the binding. This is the same binding that is used on high quality text books. Each and every photo and document has been professionally refurbished with two to as much as ten hours invested in each individual document and picture. The pages are heavy weight, 100# glossy paper which is the best available. The appearance and design of the interior has been designed by a professional designer. This book is far different from anything you have seen before. The book also has an ISBN and ISBN barcode which means that libraries across the planet will have it in their data bases. Yes, it is true that the “famous”  nude photo is uncensored and featured as a full page image. The uniqueness of this photo is my only reason for having it appear uncensored.

One of the most exciting features of the Final Edition is that it includes an astonishing DVD that is far beyond anyone’s wildest dreams! The DVD which has been professionally produced, features original never before seen footage of what I feel is the by far, the most amazing Pond and Wheel Horse historical information. Footage includes:

  • 1948 Elmer Pond testing his four wheel tractor right at the garage where it was built.

  • 1954 Cecil and Elmer Pond testing the prototype Ride-Away Junior (more than likely the one and only view of this tractor) with fiberglass hood.

  • 1957 Cecil Pond testing the prototype Uni-drive transmission on the RJ-58 tractor.

  • 1958 Potential distributors viewing the new model tractor and attachments.

  • 1959 The Pond family enjoying an RJ-58 in the snow.

  • 1966 Distributor/dealer demonstration of the new model lineup.

  • 2006 The actual voice of Cecil Pond

    I am certain that my Final Edition is, and will always be the most comprehensive and complete history of Pond and Wheel Horse tractors and their inventors.

    I have sacrificed profit for the high quality of production, publishing, printing, and binding in the United States. The professionally mastered DVD contributes to this books quality. I have been blessed with this charge and it is my responsibility to get the accurate history of Pond and Wheel Horse tractors into the hands of everyone.

     I suggest that you get at least two books; one for reading and the other for your collection. This is the Final Edition and the book has been produced in a limited quantity. There will not be a reprint as you can’t imagine how much is involved with this endeavor. The publisher feels that due to the book’s added content, extremely high quality images, superior binding/ dust jacket, and the absolutely amazing professionally produced DVD, the book will sell out quickly.
