This is the new baby. I have fixed alot of deeres but havent had the opportunity to make one pretty for myself. ITs a 112 round fender as you can see. Its in pretty good shape cosmetically. Unfortunately for me it was some ones previous project that got tore down and I am missing a few parts. There is no implement lift assembly. Some day maybe I can find a donor tractor. I guess it will be good enough for a toy if not. Ive always wanted one of these. I guess I got one now. LOL I should have read the tips before buying a tractor to restore before I got this ol girl but oh well. Just thought I would share.

Welcome! What year is it? If it is a 1966 then you have a valuable one on your hands.

Thanks for welcoming me to the site. It is a 1967. I was excited when I saw the serial number was only 11016 then i saw the cut off was like 3550 for a 1966. My dad thinks I am obsessed enough on this one a single bolt wont go back into this tractor with out john deere stamped on the head.

Man that brings back some memories.
Back in the early 70's I had a mid 60's round fender 110 that I used to mow the yard with.Used it for severial years and then sold it and got a JD 214.

Wish I still had that old 110. It was a really good tractor.

Looks like a nice project gt. Ive never really been into the jd's but there is 1 or 2 that I i do like. If I was ever to buy one to fix up , it would def. be a older round fender like that!

Welcome aboard sknap83. Glad to have you with us. Any and all help is offered if you need us. The parts and pieces you need can be easily found. One of our sponsor's, Joe's Outdoor Power, is a good place to start looking for them. I'm pretty sure Joe has the lift handle and guards. Good luck to you!

I found a hydrailic lift set up on for it. Is 100 bucks a good price for it? The round fender stuff is new to me but it seems to be a fair dollar amount.
