Tractor-feed type garage door opener

I'm in need of an old style tractor feed type garage door. When we moved into our fixer upper, we threw away the old junky garage door that was barely working thinking that we could get a new one. But due to the cramped style of our garage, none of the newer models fit.

This old style garage door opener looked like it was from the 50s or 60s. It had a tractor wheel which moved a grooved slender flat piece of metal back and forth and was connected to the garage door. I've never seen a garage door like this since I threw it away, and I've never come across one online. Any ideas what model this is or what type of garage door opener this is and where I could get one similar to it?
This was long before the remote control.... it had a special key post at the end of the driveway that you could use to open the garage door.
