You got to love the description :

You are bidding on an original used Bolens Ride-A-Matic Garden Tractor Cast Iron Grille Assembly. This goes on the front of the tractor. These are rare and hard to find. It appears to be in used condition, with rust on it. It does has the mounting bracket on the bottom of it and is also rusty. There is also some rusty bolts in the top that will need to be removed. Back of the grille is rusty. The grille is original, I do not see any welds. This item will be sold as-is, no returns or refunds once the item is purchased.

If they dug it up maybe he can get a Archaeological Grant. That would justify the price!

Gee Brian, He does say its rare and hard to find. This seller is fairly close to me but don't know who it is. All the prices in the store seem high to me.

These Style grilles were only used on the 1958 Ride-a-Matics and Walk behind Versa-Matics. (1958-1961) so they are not as common as the aluminum ones.
I wouldn't consider them rare though.....

I wonder what I can get for mine thats got original paint on it! :poke: :rolling:

Folks need to figure out that "rusty gold" doesn't mean rust==gold. ;)
