Looks like the 620 we had at work.  (Actually, we had a brace of them).
Closed the place down, and sold them to some guy in Iowa.

We also sold an old cotton picker.  A guy came 300 miles from Alabama with
a tow bar thingy, hooked up the rear (steer axle) wheels, and towed it back
300 miles home.  In the dark.  I've often wondered how that trip went.  No
worse than some adventures I've had picking up old cars, no doubt.
