We picked up a neat Ford LGT 17 H that I am told was built by Gilson as a Ford Show Tractor, before they were at the dealerships when Ford went from Jacobsen to Gilson. I will post more photos later, but wanted you guys to see the ID. tag.

From what I've been told there were 6 built to travel the Lawn & Garden shows that year, 1983 I think. This is #4

I don't know Alan, It has all of the attachments with it labeled Ford but look like Gilson production pieces.

Sweet! Can't wait to see this one. Even rarer than the coveted Case demonstrators.

I tried to get a look at it loaded on the trailer on your other thread, but not a good view of it in the pics! :(
