I was at the Dover, Pa. Auction yesterday and got 3 old WH Gt's. I bought them to keep them from the scraper, and needed them for parts.
The first is a 1257, with a good engine, the second one is a 1057. I also got another 1257 that was really rough, and sold it to guy this morning who couldn't live without it, doubled my money on it too.

Jim, The 1257 is the first Gt I ever got to use as a boy, my Dad bought one new in 1967 and I mowed and pulled with it as a boy. We had our's stolen a few years back and have been trying to find a descent one to buy and restore to give to Dad. I finally have one that won't take a miracle to restore.

Alan,
Congrats, not only do you have one that 'won't take a miracle' you have a purpose...that will make this restoration fun and a joy to achieve. Once done...lets see the pics pal and good luck. If you end up needing anything or looking for anything let me know, I am pretty busy around GT's these days...
Regards,
Jim

Brian great to see you in Dover! Glad to see you got some great deals!
I walked (ran) the auction yard just in case there was something needed......it looked like wheel horse country!


I did see a GT on the back of a truck coming in that was badged "Columbia" any chance you saw it and recognized the manufacturer?

Hope you can get them back home soon so you can enjoy them!
