Yep, it's small wheel model, like gopher said about the fenders and seat.   Probably was a 222 at some time or other, before the mods.   I didn't notice any mentionof the engine?   Does it look original?   

 

But look for a PIN number on the dash tower and that will tell the tale.   Model no. should be on there, too.

For what its worth it is a 100 or 200 series.You can tell by fenders  and seat base.400 seat sets lower than fender.And fender would be almost level with lower edge of hood.I'm with John good for parts tractor.

I am not so sure that the fenders and seat is original to the tractor,nor the hood,nor the rear wheels.I once bought a Case 195 with the wrong big block briggs and a 155 small wheel front end.i ended up using a lot of 400 series parts and a k series kohler to turn it back into a more correct big wheel tractor.

I stated that wrong,thinking about it this morning the tractor i drug home had a 155 tag and appeared to be a 155 from the front but a 195 rear half.At any rate they can be mixed and matched so its hard to tell what it is without going and looking at it.

Same basic deal here, It's the way it came 195 rear and front axle under it 12hp ran good last I used it but it's been sitting for a while(years) deck is in good shape Still for sale I just want it gone tired of looking at it and it takes up Wheel Horse space
 If someone needs parts let me know I'll part it or scrap it

Hmmm. what a wreck.

Here is my take.

It is indeed a 200 series. It has the snap-fast pins on the front and it has the newer style ez-adjust front pto clutch and engagement lever on the left side making it a 1974-76. I say 76 because 76 was the last year of the Desert Sunset paint scheme.

The other thing that throws me off is the hood. It is from about 1978 to 1983 model because it has the bump on the left side for the underhood exhaust to exit. The models prior to 1978 had the muffler on the outside of the hood coming out the right side forward.

 

The deck appears to be a older style deck (from a 155 or 195 as mentioned) that was fabbed up to work on the newer style GT. The front mule drive assembly is clearly home made.

The 6 bolt axles from a 195 or 400 series were probably used on this rear end or a 400 series rear end was installed at one time. If it were from a loader tractor the axle housings would be gusseted. Highly unlikely.

 

I say the seller is correct that it is a 222. It is a Desert Sunset Model made between 1974 and 1976. If we had the serial number we could sure narrow things down.

I'd give $100 for it just for parts.

The guy says it has a Kubota mower deck on it; which would explain the homemade mount.
