Little too far from us as well. Hard to tell in the pics how much is really rusted. Looks like it is mainly coated in dust.

It looks like everything is there except the belt shield, so it should be an easy restoration.

It's a 1957 Super Ride-A-Matic model 21HD, with a front blade and rear wheel weights.

Looks pretty complete to me also, but does look like it needs to be freshened up a bit!

She's a keeper! That tractor would make for a great restore project. Someone is saving it. It has 1 bid on it so far.

There is one of those about twelve miles from me in pieces. I think he told me 400 would take it. It is tempting, but it has been there for at least 9 years untouched. I may try to talk him down next summer. He has a front blade and blower for it also but not included.

Yes its very nice to bad the wheel weights are not the right ones.
