Finally decided to get some decals on my 2031. Found a fella whom made the originals back in 98 and had the programs and such to make em again. I chose all white, some diff than orig. Here's some pix.

I agree, decals make all the difference. That is a really nice looking Speedex. I'm also wondering, did they make many in that style?

Congratulations. Looks great.

The decals look great. That is a very nice tractor and looks even better with the new decals. Was that Vanguard the original engine in those?

I got the decals from the fella who designed and made them for the "new" Speedex in 98'. He says never got paid and thinks the group only made about 12 to 15 tractors before going under. That nose is cast iron and heavy and only those few have those. That engine is orig to this model at least, no one changed it. Very few know of these models and the ones that do are the speedex guru's that were involved with them or knew the guys that tried to make them a brand again. East Ohio and PA people mostly.

Sold my Speedex 2031 today at Portland, IN show. $1400, think he got good deal. Found a real old rusty iron wheeled maybe S model, kinda ruff, wrong engine, stuck. Have pictures in common forum at top of list. That real or made up rears and cart fronts? Want $200 for it. Should I buy it? Pretty crude!
