I have two friends (father and son) that have decided to sell their collection of finely restored, machined, tuned, built custom tractors.  They have built these from the ground up, off frame restorations and customizations.  I cant even begin to describe what great machinists and engine builders these guys are.  No detail was forgotten, no bolt unturned.  They have asked me to help sell the tractors, and I plan on putting them on Ebay tomorrow evening.  I would love to see some of these go to a member on here.  I wish I could afford one.  I would also love to avoid the fees and hassle on Ebay.  If one of you is really serious about one of these gems, please get in touch with me.  Ill upload a couple pics of each machine but I do have more available.  Located in Monroe NC.

 

I also added 3 videos of some of them running at the end.   Pretty sweeeeet sounding machines!!

 

Cub 108  $2,300

Wheel Horse Suburban  $2,500

Cub 71  $2,500

Cub 582  $6,600

Cub Orignal  $5,999

Cub 106 Tricycle  $5,999

Bantam  $5,999

 

These prices are negotiable, especially if we can avoid those ebay and paypal fees.

I couldn't afford even one of these but from where I sit.........if one had the money and wanted fine looking/running machines these would be the machines I'd want. The only person I'd want to come close to these tractors would be the Michelin Man.........NO I would not let his his buddy the Scotch Brite Pad come over to play on the tractors that's for sure.

 

Is there a back story (that you can share) about why your buddy is selling off? Hope all is well and they're just bored or something like that. Thanks for posting.

 

By the way.......since it takes about 3 minutes per video to load (in your original post) you might get more views if you upload the videos to Youtube and then post the links here. If you need help or don't want to bother I'd be willing to upload them to my account and post the links for you. Just PM me if you would like any help.

Can't slide that one by the Wife.  On my recent project she asked how much did that cost?  I replied between 2 & 3 hundred bucks which we (GTT guys) all know is code for 6 to 8 hundred.  I don't think she would believe me if my tractor turned out like one of these.

Those lawn tractors are sharper than some of the 10000 dollar big antique tractors I've seen. 

 

I really hope you can help get them sold to someone who can give them the respect and care they deserve.  Those things are museum quality!

 

Have you thought about seeing if one of the IH museums would want one of the Cubs?  Or any garden tractor museum?

 

Oh how I wish I had the money...
