After looking for awhile i finally found one Its orange for now plan on turning it into a ford over winter (just like the blue better then the orange) its an 83 jake 14hp hydro all original with manuals and all the maintence records since new paid 350.00 for it. works just great. Sold my john deere to make room for this one. My dad had a bunch of fords when i was growing up and i always liked the way the looked and mowed.

Very nice tractor. Congratulations. It looks like you got an excellent deal. It has obviously been well cared for and that makes all the difference. I kinda like the red myself!

Welcome to the forum! That is one nice looking Jake. You are going to love that tractor, no matter the color. I sure love mine, best money I have spent on GT's! Take us along in your journey from that to Ford Blue, please!

I will definitely post pics as i go. The orange is ok but i really like the look of the blue and white. I have the ford dump trailer that my dad had from new when he bought his first ford not sure of the year. Thanks guys for the comments.
