I haven't had much time to resize and load pictures but here are a couple:

This was a beautiful JD 140H3 patio:

And look at this JD 200 series with, shall we say, a "repower".

Great pics! I like the JD 200 Hit-N-Miss repower. Did someone buy it?

I always loved those engines. :thumbs:

NICE pics !

Just looking at the the JD 140, someone has a LOT of time in, on that one. Love the color, too. Was it an original color option on the patio series? Can't say I've ever seen a patio in that color combo.

I think that was the "Sunset Orange" color package. Patios came in orange, blue, yellow and red.

Well, if it's original with no cracks that I saw the seat alone could be worth more than $1000!

That looks to be a newer seat dyed to match the hood. Does look to be a pretty nice though has the flat wheels and is the H3 model and looks to be original tires

Looking forward to the rest of the pics Thanks Steve

Great shots!!! All I could think of when I looked at that "repowered" 200 was the paraphrased line "...he got the action, he got the motion, Oh yeah, the boy can plow. (Apologies to Mark Knopfler!:D) What a great transplant/hybrid classic!

In addition to their brochure photography from yesteryear through to today, the "Patio" model shows just how strongly JD's advertising and design is aimed towards women. That's not all bad because some guys have to clear all their OPE purchases through their womenfolk.:D

Yes, I buzzed up there about noon, spent a couple of pleasant hours and then left. Nothing but clear sailing through calm seas for me!
