It is in nice original painted condition, but price is way too high.  Mostly original, but some custom headlight trim, not OE tail lights, and no 3pt arms.  The chrome lift handle on the hood isn't factory, nor the side marker lights.  Nice one though!!

I like the look of it, but I too feel the price is way too high.

Yeah, that is a pretty nice tractor, but I agree that the price is too high on it.  Also, he says the engine is a beast and not short on power but he doesn't mention what engine is in it or what HP it has...  lol!  I love the cushy looking captain's chair on it though, it looks like a comfy ride!  The hood design also is pretty neat and makes it look like a shark, I think.

I would say the engine is original, and that is a 12HP Briggs cast iron.  Oh, the armrest cushions are custom, not OE.

I'm finding at least locally that since the huge snow storm we got (foot plus) all these older tractors are popping up on CL. Maybe it's just me, but I feel when I see this, that maybe it couldn't do the job anymore and they want something newer. 

 

I am looking forward to getting my JB running this year, 1st need to clean out the mouse nest that was made behind the key switch.

Unless they're going at it from the other angle?  They figure with all the heavy snow we got that maybe people's newer plastic tractors couldn't handle it and broke down and might be looking for a good deal on a solid, American built tractor that can do the job right?  So, they figure if they sell off their current classic GT to someone for a good price they can buy their next project or something?  Just a thought...

One of these is on my wish list. Pictures for when the add disappears. After seeing danials this one looks wierd with the smaller rear tires.

Mine are all JBI's, while this one is a JBII, which is supposed to have the smaller rims/tires.
