Thanks for sharing your pictures and telling some of the story with em. That chain saw sign would fit in well on my wall..

Wish I had 3- 4 grand with me. I could have came home a happy man.

Great pics!
This Bolens is even earlier than the ones you posted pictures of in the first post. If I'm not mistaken this was the first tractor to be sold under the Bolens name. These began production in 1921 and were sold up until 1954 (According to my dealer literature)

there's really no way to tell if red was original that year, but I kind of doubt it as all the ones I have seen were green/yellow with a red gas tank.

you know he pointed to the gas tank area where he said there was hints of red paint. Bet he assumed the hole thing was red.
