Seen this on CL and although I'm not usually a JD guy, This things looks really nice. I thought you JD folks may like it. Not sure if the price is what they go for......

It looks to be in really good shape. I have a 60 and 70, they are fun to drive around. Could be handy to blow the sidewalk but, I do not think it is a good snowblower tractor because it is light and only has a 6 horse engine.

60's are fun little tractors. I would think someone could pay 500 for that and do well. Its in beautiful shape! Here's a pic of my 60. ~Jake

That is the nicest 60 I have ever seen! Yours also has a heavy duty look to it as well.

What size aha are those Jake? Getting a spot ready in the garage to start on the 60 I got for my grandson.
I gave $75 and it needs total restore. Has no engine in it, and when I get finished you won't touch it for that price. Lol
I'm not usually that way on my GT's , but planning a real show piece for this one.

Does look pretty nice!

For those interested in restoring a 60 or 70, just keep in mind you'll need a good engine! The 60's & 70's use a clutch on the end of the crankshaft that is specific to those tractors. A Briggs from a JD 100 might work, but otherwise the engine is going to have to be for those tractors or crankshaft will need to be machined to fit.

If you don't need the PTO, an 8 HP Briggs fits with some frame modification, as in my L/60 Custom, made from a 69-60:

My 70 I has a 12-1/2 HP Briggs from a MTD Yardman, took a little more frame modification:

I also have a 1970-70 waiting to be restored, it's the complete one in the pic below, the parts one became the 70 I:

The 7 HP Tecumseh is stuck in it, just hope I can get it running when I get to it. It's soaking now! ~~ Lowell
