This is the last of our collection, a 1200 Electric start. Engine was completely overhauled-bored, valves, crank rod,carb, ignition, etc. Many new parts. The engine, grill, hood - dash, wheels and fenders have been painted using IH red and white. Comes with a blade frame, no blade part which is raised by foot control - very unique. Included with this as has been with the rest of the collection is a CD of all, the service, sales, etc manuals from our years of collection. The one front tire is split but have an extra trire to replace it, had a new tube installed.

This tractor has been signed by Max when he was 94 years old. inside of the hood. Pictures of the signing will come with this tractor.


Have been asking $1200.00, will consider an reasonable offers.
NOTE; More pictures later

The trans system is very interesting. Can you describe how it functions? No clutch, so how does it take off without lurching, or grinding gears.

Got to drive to enjoy it, thats how I learned! Here goes, the engine is connected to the drive shaft, turns as soon as engine is running turning the top shaft of the trans. What holds it in neutral is the 2 brake bands around the 2 planataries. When you move the gear shift to low to go forward it releases the one band and uses the internal gears to drive the out put shaft, when you move it to high it puts the brake back on and a clutch on the front of the planateries locks up and makes it direct drive. Fo reverse you move the lever back and it releases the other planatary and you go backward. Once adjusted it is the SMOOTHEST drive system bar none, even a hydro. I will also make this statement, in todays world, writing the service manual would be a chore. You have to play with it to understand it, that is why when you buy these the CD of info is very important and useful. Understand? No? Buy it and learn first hand!! Enjoy!

Same here.

I've seen Dean's Amigos and they are really great restorations, second to none.

Never drove a Model T Ford.....can't compare. As for my location, we are 40 miles east of the Indiana line and 40 west of Toledo.

Go to Mapquest, insert 43502 and you can see how close the the Turnpike we are.

Glad you found a buyer, and thanks for updating us.  Did you happen to tell the new owner about GTTalk?
