OK guys. Tjhis is on my local (Clev. OH) Craigslist.

What that heck is it?

Clutch looks like a G10, and appears to lack the locking diff like the G10.

Trans and PTO lever however don't look anything at all like my G10.

Seat and fender pan?????

What's ya'll's best guess?

I agree. The 600 didn't have the parking brake. Looks like a 650/750/850. Not a 1963.

It looks to be mostly original except for the shifter knob
Its either a 650 or 750 (1966-1967) depending on which model it is.

Cool...I figured you guys would know. The thing that puzzled me most was the steel seat.

I meant to put a ? after the FrankenBolens...but CRAFT disease struck in that case too :D :D :D

If we could get a closer shot of the steering wheel It would be easy to ID the tractor. The 650 did not have the "Grips" on the sides, those were added to the steering wheels starting in 67'

The 650 was a cheaper tractor than the 1050 (Price wise) and Bolens probably saved a few bucks by using the pan seat instead of the cushion seats.

Both the 1966 model 650 and the 1967 model 750 tractors came with a cushion that had to be attached to the steel seat pan. (I did many of them!)

These seats/cushions did not have any form of backrest. ....The cushion slipped over the seat pan and were secured with a drawstring.

I didnt know that
I assumed the cushions for the pan seat were optional equipment like they were with the older 600/800's

I used the zoom on my browser, and it appears that there ARE grips on the steering wheel.
