Illinois brand tractor 1919

Andy I have an instruction book and parts list for an Illinois "Master-Drive" tractor with "Super-Drive" supplement. Anyone have information on this tractor? Book is dated March 15, 1919. Bloomington, IL
Andy I think I have discovered why there is so little info available. According to a fellow on a usenet group, there are only two known remaining. He thought one was in the Smithsonian but I haven't been able to confirm that.
Dale(MO) Andy,
I'm not sure, but I think there was one around the town of Owensville, MO. It has been about 20 years since I saw the pictures of it, and I think the man who owned it has since passed away (he was no kid then). If memory serves me correctly, I think there was an auction at his place 3 or 4 years ago, and it was sold then. I may try to find out a little more, if I can.

john edgar Hi from Australia,
I have just obtained a tractor which may be an Illanois superdrive. Can anybody send information which may assist identifying this one? The rear wheel hub has "electric wheel company ---- illanois" cast in it.
The Australian company "Ronaldson Bros. and Tippett" located in Ballerat, manufactured the R & T Superdrive tractor, but began by importing the Illanois, and later on the components before local manufacture began.
