Its Too far from me to get it.
Looks like the restoration was done right. The paint he used looks like an exact match

I have a feeling that rascal isn't going to last long at that price.

Is that reel mower attachment fairly rare?

I may be mistaken, but I think the PowerHo's were a darker green. .....I think the brighter green started in 1954 with the VersaMatics.

I went out to compare an early NOS Power Ho part with a 55' Versa-Matic part and they appear to be pretty close.
The power ho part is the slanted part and the Versa-Matic is the straight laying part.

Didn't the green get darker as the years progressed? I know you can see a big difference in color from the lighter green on my 55' versa-matic and the darker green/blue that's on my 58'

the only thing i noticed about the yrs was the versa piant appears to have a metalic look to it and the older paints were more flat.
