It's probably a '68 or '69 1250. I see the cruise control (so a 1250) and it has the two bends in the hydro lift lever.

Looks like a later 1250-01 or a 1250-02.

Are you looking to buy it? Its in real tuff shape I would not give gold for it.

The tag under the hood is the Id tag for the tractor.

Yes its pretty ragged. I might buy it if the price etc. is right. Pretty tuff tractor but parts could be a deal breaker.

Kinda sad to see such a great machine sitting neglected. But having seen pics of other restores,tractors in much worse shape have come back to life.

I'm not so sure that it's 3-pt.

I have a 3-pt for the early Large Frames and the arms going up to the lift rods are straight, not bent like the ones in that pic.

They should be bent so to line up with the lift rods.As for the one in the pic i could not be certin if it is the orginal or from a different make.Wish there was a pic of the back because that driveshaft is driving me crazy :confuse: :confuse:
