I'm looking forward to an answer on this too. I was out driving mine around yesterday and just can't get over how big...and fast it is!

They all cost about the same, competition, and all that!! 

 

This one, purchased in 1989, then adjusted for inflation to 2013, would cost $20,000 today!!

I think the buyers were paying inflated prices back then. Imports, imported parts, lower benefits, etc has really dropped the prices of the GTs'.

Don't know on a MF16 but back in 1977-1978 my Dad purchased a MF1650 with 3 point, mid mount mower, front snow blade, and a rear scoop that dumped for somewhere around $4,000 if I remember correctly.  I thought he was throwing money away back then but it sure served him well and the second owner still uses it to the day as her mowing tractor.
