Glad it was saved from the scrapper! What were the prices like on those other tubeframes that were lined up for auction?
Did you get the original seat with it too?
Looking forward to watching the restoration The 1000 is my favorite of the tubeframe's

I was at that auction also.Alot of them went for scrap.I think average price was $25 -$50 for majority of them.It was a shame to see those good parts machines go like that.
yea they all went for 25 to 50 for the most part. there was a 900 in ok shape that brought 80 but the guy that bought it is goin to save it. most of them were just junk. there was a 1250 with a dozer blade but i dont know what it went for. the 1000 i got has the same seat as a 1050 has but its on a hinge. is that what its supose to have? an i will have some pics of the tractor tomarrow. i met one of our members on here but forgot his name.

Sounds like a good deal :smile1:
Well, as long as it isn't as rough as this one
its not to far off lol but it will be a gem when it all done with the danuser cd1 on there. im going to get a new hood because it looks like someone sat on it lol plus its pitted. tom has them at farmersville that are in good shape.

maybe i should give rick dale a call at ricks restorations put it in a crate an send it so las vegas to get restored i mean it should only be about 15 or 20,000 right? :bigrofl:what a joke... maybe he will paint it that pretty gold color like he did that bantam:confuse:

Here's a picture
of what it should look like:
I think its actually a bit larger than the seat you would find on the 1050
My original seat is missing on my 1000 and that is one of the reasons why I'm holding off on the restoration, until I locate the original seat pan.

here she is in all her glory lol. shes a diamond in the rough but nothing the sandblaster, a little elbow grease and paint cant do. when im done you wouldnt even know its the same tractor. i goin to take completely down to nothing all new seals in the rear and trans, in the engine, new belts, decals, seat, tires. the whole 9 yards on this one. its goin to be the nicest 1000 around:bounce:
and no thats not the seat o have but i will have to find one. the 1000 was only made in 65 right? an how many did they make?
