Description: 1956 Tc12 with two 6-71 Detroit Diesel engines and two Allison automatic transmissions. A very unique vintage bulldozer. Possibly the oldest Tc12 in existence with the early grills front and back . This crawler also has four vertical air cleaners that only the early Tc12's had. The 18' foot blade is currently removed for hauling. General Motors GM owned Euclid at the time this crawler was manufactured and it is well known that GM invested a lot of $ in the development of this crawler. Just the time and money required to stamp out the futuristic looking grilles would have been enormous. Both engines start and run good as shown in the one video. Blade cradle goes up and down as it should with a new cable installed. This crawler also has the optional canopy. The crawler spent it’s working life in Virginia until it went to a collector in Berea, Kentucky and now resides in Cincinnati, Ohio. Several hundred dollars of literature go with it including all of the original service records from when it was being used in the late 50’s and 60’s. We also have the head light bezel that is missing in the pictures. We also have the four missing pads that were removed to lift the crawler with a huge crane onto a lowboy in Virginia before it was up and running. We also have one original battery cover and one new one that is missing in the picture. The belly guards are off, but we have them. Drawbar appears to have never been hooked to and most likely the secondary winch on the back was never used which would have been used to power a pan. Still has both original serial number tags. The chain rollers look perfectly round to me, but look at the picture. There are several local hauling companies here in Cincinnati that can haul it to your home. Blade is currently removed for hauling. All we have done with it is put it in the barn and start both engines once a year and allow them to get up to temperature. $34,500.00 O.B.O. The crawler can be stored inside for up to 6 months after payment in full is received. A later model Tc12 recently sold for $47,250 at the Aumann auction listed below.
