I'm new to the forum and was hoping someone could help me out. I'm looking for a Ford 80, 100, 120, or 140 garden tractor. I'm in south central IN, about 30 min from Louisville, KY and was hoping to find something between Indianapolis, IN and Lexington, KY. If anyone has one of these or can point to to someone who does, please reply.

thanks

Welcome! You might want to post a wanted ad in the classifieds. We are trying to keep For Sale/Wanted separate from the forums.

Welcome bullseye. Glad you joined. Besides a want ad here, how about posting an ad on your local Craigslist under farm and garden. I see Fords all the time on Craigslist in NY. I would imagine that would be a good source for you too in IN.

I have, just no luck on finding anything close. Not a lot of Fords in my area. I did come across 1 in Lexington, KY, ( about 2 hrs east of me) but i've been unable to get in touch with the seller. Email only, they didn't leave a phone #. Oh well, the search continues.

Don't lose heart, bullseye. I searched for months to find my JD420. I wasn't even that particular...I wanted a loader and a 3pt hitch...everything else was optional ( I knew I was into a landscaping nightmare/addiction). Do you have Kijiji and Buy and Sell there? That's where mine eventually showed up.

I can't say what you'll find in Indiana, but the Fords do pop up once in a while up here on craigslist. I find just about everything I buy on that site. Running a want ad in the in a nearby rural community paper could work too. I found a really nice older White that way. Good luck!

Dont forget about farm auctions. I have found some really good buys at estate auctions. Also consignment sales are good. Check the tractor/equipment over real close the day before the sale. Good luck.
