Personally, I would consider it because I've always wanted a 24" round rood and that looks to be in very nice shape. I would have to have some more info, however, because the ad doesn't even state it's mechanical condition. It does say it runs, but how well? Does it have a bad smokong habit? Looks to be electric start and hydraulics which is very nice for that era. I would say its well worth a closer look.

I agree with Jeff definitely worth a closer look. Even if the engine does need work I still think its a good price because of the hood, hydraulics and electric start.

I only agree with the others. The hood, hydraulics, and electric start make it much more valuable then one without those things. I think that might have the first style hydrulics offered. I will post a diagram showing it. It is most deffinetly worth looking at more.

About 1/2 price of the ones I have come across lately. If complete and everything works, good tires and what not, definitely worth a look. If not, could be a money pit.

Glad to this thread is about a GT. When I first read the title, I thought you wanted members to share their thoughts about "The Country's Economy". That wouldn't be a good topic for here.

I see the tractor has been taken of CL. Wondering if the OP had purchased it?
